The plot revolves around two families in Pittsburgh - a father (Walsh) with three adult daughters and a hotel lounge singer with her med student son - who are forced together after a decades-old secret is revealed. The actor-recording artiste will play Sheri, the lounge singer, who is described as a gorgeous diva with no money who had a regional hit in the late '80s but acts as if she's performing at Lincoln Center every night.
