The oldest daughter Dee constantly believes that she is better than the rest of the family causing a family feud about who gets the cherished quilt.
Dee has always been on a pedestal over her family and she soon finds out that it is no longer the case.
Once she finds this out conflict arises. The biggest conflict lies between Mama and Dee. Dee forces Mama to be the way Dee would like, kind of like a television show.
