THE LYONS centers on the trials and tribulations of the resolute power yielding matriarch of the family. Her husband is dying. Her son is in a bad relationship. Her daughter is struggling with the twelve step program. Worst of all she has to come up with a fresh and radical design for the living room. What else can go wrong in her life?
