The Wilcoxes are NOT a nice family. To quote matriarch Ruth-Dean “… every member of our family is pure white trash. Convicts, drug addicts, whores, and deadbeats. But family is family.” When Ruth-Dean kicks the bucket, she leaves her surprisingly valuable estate to oldest grandson, Colby, with one catch: he has 30 days to fix his degenerate kinfolk, or else he gets nothing.
