Meet the Figgs. June, the family's matriarch, looks forward to a quiet retirement--if only she can get her three adult children to finally, finally, move out of the house. But her dreams are shattered when her son Derek unexpectedly becomes… a single father. Now there's a newborn baby at home, and Derek's older siblings are showing no sign of going anywhere either. In the midst of the chaos, June's husband, Randy, has a shocking revelation--he has another son, who was given up for adoption. With family life flying fast and furious around her, June finds herself thinking about her own adoptive parents. Where did she come from? Does Randy's adopted son experience the same longing she's always felt? Will her new grandson be traumatized without his mother? And why in the world are all the kids still at home, anyway? 2018.
