Marvin's Room follows estranged sisters Lee and Bessie. Lee is a single mother who's been busy raising her troubled teenage son, Hank. Bessie's got her hands full with their elderly father and his soap-opera-obsessed sister. When Bessie is diagnosed with leukemia, the two women reunite for the first time in 18 years.
