The two cousins, who were raised as sisters, have middle school aged children and have grown apart over the years. When the cousin struggles to find a suitable job and needs childcare, our protagonist offers to help out. However, things take a turn when the cousin hears about her children's experiences at their temporary home. 🤯👩‍👧‍👦
