The Kids Are Alright

Set in the 1970s, follows a traditional Irish-Catholic family, the Clearys, as they navigate changes during one of America's most turbulent decades. In a working-class neighborhood outside L.A., Mike and Peggy raise eight boys, who live out their days with little supervision. The household is turned upside down when oldest Lawrence returns and announces he's quitting the seminary to go and "save the world." There are 10 people, three bedrooms, one bathroom and everyone in it for themselves.
