Bonnie is upset when her brother, Ray is arrested and calls Adam instead of her to bail him out. Also, Christy gets fired from her job at the restaurant.
Christy is a waitress at a posh Napa Valley establishment who is four months sober and doing her best to be a good mom and overcome a history of questionable choices. Her sobriety is tested when Bonnie, her recovering alcoholic mom, reappears chock-full of passive-aggressive insights into Christy's many mistakes.
Bonnie joins Christy's already complicated circle of relationships: her handsome, married boss - and lover - Gabriel; the restaurant's hot-tempered chef, Rudy; her pretty, 16-going-on-25-year-old daughter, Violet; her sweet but overly honest son, Roscoe; her irresponsible ex-husband and Roscoe's father, Baxter; and Violet's clueless boyfriend, Luke. Christy tries to remain positive as she pursues her new path in life, but she faces an uphill battle, surrounded by a dubious support system - and a copious amount of dysfunction.
