Kevin is the youngest son of renowned political strategist and a silver screen star--both of whom have stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. He grew up in a huge mansion living a charmed life. But now Kevin has hoarded himself out of this Upper East Side Manhattan apartment and sleeps on a bench in front of the building. His apartment is so filled that the only way in is through a window on the fire escape. Kevin's neighbors are fed up, and his brother (the executor of the family trust), is tired of coming to his rescue. He now faces eviction if he does not clean up his home. Mary has hoarded her home to capacity with things she thinks are from the Victorian age. She is so obsessed with her collections of furniture and decorations from that time period that she has let the house crumble around her. Her children no longer want to help her or let her stay in their homes. Mary must now clean her home in an effort to salvage her relationship with her family.
