In this Canadian comedy, the three Fine sisters, JoJo, Jayne, and Jelly, grapple with the recent loss of their father and make their own way forward with anger, love, and a healthy dose of shenanigans!
30s to 40s
An untenured and somewhat dowdy English professor, JoJo seethes with suppressed passions. She likes to think of herself as the wise and benevolent elder sister, but she is hyper-sensitive and given to sudden displays of histrionics.
A successful Bay Street shark and a severely closeted lesbian, Jayne is the middle child. She believes there is no problem that cannot be solved using a flow chart and deludes herself that her emotions are under strict control. She is, in fact, a ferocious marshmallow.
20s to 30s
Jelly is the youngest – a self-employed, self-supporting artist. Despite her sisters’ beliefs, she is not only a serious artist, she is revealed as the most responsible and pragmatic of the three. She sympathizes with and loves her sisters and is tortured by the battle that rages between them. She is very tolerant, but in the end, she can only be pushed so far…
