Geraldine Liddle (Jane Curtin
) is a mild mannered middle aged supermarket supervisor with one child, three sisters, an unemployed husband, and a small group of people she thinks are her friends. When Geraldine gets an opportunity to compete for two million dollars on the hit game show "Bring Home the Bacon", suddenly she becomes the center of everyone else's greed, ambition and jealousy. Even before she's answered her first skill-testing question on TV, Geraldine is besieged with pressure from friends and family to share her potential earnings, and help those around her achieve their dreams. All of this only serves to highlight the fact that Geraldine hasn't yet figured out dreams of her own.
