The ultimate American family drama. Regret and resentment hang as thick as the Connecticut summer fog. During the course of one ordinary day, the Tyrone family walks an ever changing tightrope strung between truth and illusion. The aging matinee idol James Tyrone with his morphine-addicted wife, Mary, and two sons, Jamie and Edmund, unearth long-buried secrets forcing each to face the demons that plague them individually. Their unbreakable bonds of love, anger, and obligation may be their ruin or the final thing that saves their family.
