Set in the summer of 1936, the play depicts the late summer days when love briefly seems possible for three of the Mundy sisters (Chris, Rose, and Kate) and the family welcomes home the frail elder brother, who has returned from a life as a missionary
in Africa.

However, as the summer ends, the family foresees the sadness and economic
privations under which they will suffer as all hopes fade.
