This unconventional documentary follows the everyday lives of two reclusive, formerly upper-class women: a mother and daughter both named Edith Beale. This aunt and cousin of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis live their eccentric lives in a decaying mansion in East Hampton, in a sort of timeless bubble of uncompromised and eccentric character.
