What’s ‘Bad Sisters’ About?
Bad Sisters blends thriller and dark humor to bring out the best of five sisters, Becka, Bibi, Eva, Ursula, and Grace. They find themselves in a messy situation after a family calamity that tests their connection. After their parent’s mysterious death, the siblings had to support each other, including an attempt to get one of them out of a toxic marriage.
Abruptly, the sister’s brother-in-law dies, and an investigation begins to determine the killer.
