Beth and Zoe head to their childhood home in Washington, DC as Beth's mother, Carol Clarke, has bruised her hip, she previously having broken it. In addition to providing her care during her recuperation, they want to speak to her about either working on a part-time basis or preferably retiring altogether from her longtime job as a high school principal. Zoe knows that she has to be the stronger one in the situation as Beth has never been able to stand up to her strong-willed mother. The issue of Carol's retirement ends up taking a back seat to something that Zoe learned on the drive to DC and which Beth finally admits to her mother: that she was laid off and has been unemployed now for several months. This issue brings Beth back to her growing up and having her dreams of being a prima ballerina dashed, partly out of the family's circumstance and partly out of being good but not quite good enough - or so Carol thought - despite she putting every ounce of effort she could muster into ...
