The show follows George as he reunites with his daughter and ex-wife after years of estrangement, moving in with Mayan and her husband and young son. Coming from different generations, the pair butt heads a lot throughout the series, causing a lot of drama, but ultimately, there is clearly a lot of love and laughter between everyone in the family.

But it’s clear that between her tense relationship with her daughter and her struggling company, she’s worried that she may have chosen the wrong path in her life and nothing now is what she thought it would be.
