As the family celebrates the upcoming wedding, Kevin attempts to complete this happiness by reconciling his sister with the abusive father who left them years before. Amidst the thin walls of their home, the members of this family are forced to confront a concealed history, the self-destructive nature that has plagued them for generations, and the failure of the tidy truths onto which they have desperately held... in Levittown."
