After Samantha’s grandma dies, her fractured family is summoned to pick through the house full of belongings and trash, leaving Post-it notes on whatever they want to take. Between old napkins, a closet full of ketchup packets, and a freezer full of rotting meat are gems like a grandfather clock and plastic deer lawn statuettes that hold more sentiment. While Samantha’s divorced, estranged father David sifts through memories, all she wants is to find a simple object that could represent her place in the family. When other family members arrive, tug of wars and passive-aggressive conversations commence. In a house full of junk and sadness, it comes down to Samantha and David to find their way back to each other.
