After a 6 year absence, Brooke Wyeth returns home to Palm Springs to visit her family, celebrate Christmas and argue with her opinionated, prickly (but warm-hearted!) kin. When she announces the imminent publication of a revealing memoir featuring an intimate family tragedy that her parents desire to keep private, the Wyeths face exposure and embarrassment, shame and redemption. A lively, crackling dark comedy, Other Desert Cities is a smart political play about the myth of the modern-day grown-up.
