Three grown sisters try to cope with (and live with) their father who has one simple rule: be at home for Sunday dinner. Attendance is mandatory and non-negotiable. Tradition is not to be messed with.

Although the women humor their father's old-fashioned ways, each of them is searching for fulfillment outside the family circle. College student Maribel is growing increasingly frustrated with the singles scene and wants a steady man; gorgeous career woman Carmen is fed up with her boyfriend and his wandering eye; meanwhile, eldest daughter Letitia, who has suppressed her own romantic longings, senses something missing in her life.
