Happily married Ava and her daughter Daisy have always had the same outlook on life. Marriage (to the right guy) and babies. But when Daisy begins to question her life choices, Ava is forced to examine her own.
Independent widow Mia and her eighteen-year-old daughter Felicity have always been close. Until Felicity moves to Dublin and starts a relationship with a man ten years her senior.
Image-conscious, diet-obsessed Greta and her daughter Tally could not be more different. But mothers and daughters can love each other without actually liking each other, right?
As each of the daughters finds her own path in life, the women must confront the new dynamics in their relationships. And a holiday in Spain provides just the opportunity to discover whether growing up really has to mean growing apart . . .
