Cornflake Pie

by Grace Tomblin Marca

directed by Zach Kelley

At a picture-perfect California beach house, a family reunites and prepares their Thanksgiving meal. Sisters Beth and Nora host, as their mother and partners catch up. But Beth has a scandalous secret, and as it is revealed, each member of the family must decide what they can tolerate, what they can forgive and how they will behave when the facades they’ve built around their lives get ripped away. Brutally funny, delightfully profane, Cornflake Pie explores the endurance of love and the fidelity of family.
