The hilarious and heartwarming story explores the lives, loves and losses of six women. These women gossip and harangue each other through the best of times and comfort and repair one another through the worst. The action centers on Truvy’s Beauty Parlor, in Chiquapin Parish, Louisiana, where the women are as delicate as magnolias and as strong as steel.
