Nurse practitioner Gina cares for the uninsured in her small Arizona town. When she hears that a friend's friend has become ill, Gina, like always, is willing to help. After a seizure in the backyard, free-spirited life coach Faith has been diagnosed with a brain tumor and probable breast cancer, but she strangely seems blissfully unaware and disinterested.
Gina, along with Faith's friend Rachel and a group of women Faith has nicknamed "The Tribe," decide to hold dinner parties for Faith as an intervention of sorts. But Faith, as a life coach, is more interested in her friends' lives than the danger in her own.
But with comedy, camaraderie, and plenty of wine, the dinners become a support group for not only Faith, but all the women in attendance. In time, each will begin to open up about their own heartache, fears and denials.
A bittersweet and humorous story at its core, "The Ta Ta Dinners" tells the story of friendship, female empowerment, and all the things we hold dear in our hearts.
