Anna Capable has a collection. Her daughter Jessy calls it a hoard. In a desperate attempt to fix her family, Jessy enlists the help of a reality TV show to remove her mother's mess. But the camera sees a story very different from the one Jessy wants to tell. Is cleanliness really next to godliness? Funny and heartfelt, THE CAPABLES examines hoards, collections, and the dirty business of radical inclusion.
