What Is the Story of Other Desert Cities?
Set in Palm Springs over Christmas weekend, Other Desert Cities centers on the powerful Wyeth family. Patriarch Lyman, an actor-turned-ambassador during the Reagan administration, and matriarch Polly, a former screenwriter, are set to celebrate the holidays with their adult children. Without informing her parents, daughter Brooke Wyeth, a once-promising novelist, has written a memoir exposing painful family secrets. Her brother, Trip, the creator of a hit TV reality series, tries to stay out of the crossfire as their alcoholic aunt, Polly’s sister Silda, eggs Brooke on. In a series of confrontations, the Wyeths sift through conflicting memories of the past and face serious choices about how to go forward.
