The Clarkes are an unusually tall, Catholic family living in the Oakland Hills of California in the spring of 1970. Things get chaotic when Sister Connie, Mrs. Clarke's lifelong best friend, well-loved local nun, and probable lesbian gets hit by a bus on her way to the movies. Over a twenty four hour period the Clarke children run their household under the questionable supervision of , the young campaign manager assisting Mr. Clarke as he runs for City Comptroller.
The Talls contains: sibling-on-sibling violence, confusing sexual situations, drugs, Catholicism etc. There's something in there for the whole family.
