Movie Haiku:Slice-of-life dramedy about three sisters forced to care for each other while Mom recuperates from a botched liposuction procedure. Two of the daughters are self-absorbed adults. The third is adopted -- a young Black girl whos birth Mom was a crack addict. Interesting set-up but, alas, its only intermittently successful.
