Based on Terry McMillan's best-selling novel, a DAY LATE AND A DOLLAR SHORT, stars Academy Award, Golden Globe, Daytime Emmy, Grammy, and Tony Award winner Whoopi Goldberg as irascible matriarch Viola Price. When Viola learns that her next asthma attack is likely to kill her, she sets out to fix her fractured family before she sets foot anywhere near the grave. Proudly choosing to keep her health issues a secret, she contends with sibling rivalry, teen pregnancy, and prescription drug addiction and that's just one of her four kids. There's also a jailbird son to teach how to be a better father, a granddaughter in big trouble, and an estranged husband to rescue from his scheming young girlfriend. It's the kind of meddling the Price family hasn't experienced from Viola in decades, and she won't have an easy time bending her loved ones to her will.
