Barbara (Julia Roberts), the second child, also arrives in the county with her husband Bill Fordham (Ewan McGregor) and her daughter Jean (Abigail Breslin).

Days go by and the three daughters look for alternative care for their mother, even starting to wonder who among them will have to take care of her while remaining in Osage.
