Secrets are simmering within the hallowed halls of Beaumont Mansion in St. Charles Parish, Louisiana.  Beautiful and accomplished Milla Dejoie receives a phone call in the middle of the night from her estranged mother, Wilhelmina.  Her grandmother, “Thee”, Mrs. Dejoie, dowager of polite society, is dead, and, along with her, their inheritance – unless Milla comes home to bury her.

Milla reluctantly leaves her life abroad and returns to her ancestral home, a sprawling postbellum Southern mansion, and to her mother, a faded alcoholic debutante undone by the burden of bearing the family’s legacy.

With the help of Louisa (the family’s cherished maid), and a heaping dose of laughter, tears, and soul, the women begin to repair their relationship.  However, their reconciliation grinds to a halt when, during the funeral, long-held secrets erupt.

Soulful gospel, sultry R&B, and finger-snapping pop help Love & Southern D!scomfort weave a musical tale of a prodigal daughter’s tumultuous reunion with her past as she concedes to the dying wishes of the family’s matriarch.
