Jinny Broadhurst has a large family of adult children and a sister who is mildly mentally challenged. Trying to keep her large extended family on the straight and narrow path of normality is sometimes more than Jinny can handle. Her sister, Lottie is innocently outlandish and has a little girl quality about her that makes everyone love and protect her. Jinny's house sometimes does seem like a menagerie especially when her favoured son Larry tries to find his lost innocence by taking up with a woman who is above him in station. His problems are worsened by the close proximity of his lost fiance and the woman he scorned for her living across the street from his home. Jinny is always afraid that the next generation will also become a menagerie.
