Carolyn’s seven-year-old daughter is so distraught about her mother’s hoarding that she has been leaving notes around the house saying, “It would be better off if I were killed.” Carolyn must get control of her hoarding or face not only Social Services but perhaps a much more tragic consequence. Jo’s house is a collector’s dream, filled with thousands of plates, crosses, pots, glassware, and clocks. But her hoard is destroying her marriage of 48 years to her husband, Ed. He feels robbed of his retirement and has moved out once. If Jo does not address the problem, the marriage could be over.
