The Birthdays : The Millers, an ordinary American family, are traveling to a small island off the coast of Maine where they will celebrate their father's seventy-fifth birthday. All three are expecting children of their own, and at the same time find themselves at a major crossroads in their lives. Eldest son Daniel, a graphic designer, is still reeling from the car accident a year ago that left him paraplegic. Jake, the middle child, has found wealth and success but feels increasingly irrelevant to his wife, especially since she has found out she's carrying twins. Hilary, the free-spirited youngest daughter, and apple of her father's eye, does not know who the father of her child is. Finally, their mother Ellen has recently become attached to the husband of her dead friend. As the Miller family gathers, an unexpected incident shatters the celebrations and it seems that nobody will emerge quite the same.
