The main character, Vera Sweet, is a housewife who has been engaged in family duties for 15 years. She no longer wants to put up with playing such a part and tries to self-actualize with her own confectionery. However, no member of her family treats her hobby seriously. It would have remained her little whim but she finds out her husband is cheating on her. Having thrown him out of the house, Vera decides to start her own business to feed her family. Her teenage daughter, elderly crazy father, and cranky sister will have to become a part of this sweet business whether they like it or not.
