This heart wrenching drama is about a beauty shop, in Louisana owned by Truvy, and the tragedies of all of her clients. Shelby is a diabetic and getting married to a rich southern hunk of a lawyer. Her mother M'Lynn is bossy, but caring.M'Lynn's friends include a cast of colourful and dynamic southern women of a multitude of ages and veiws. Shelby falls pregnant, much to her mother's disapproval. A pregnancy could be fatal for someone of Shelby's condition.But claims she'd rather have thirty minutes of wonderful, than a lifetime of nothing special.Will Shelby live through this pregnancy and watch her baby grow up? Or die young and leave her mother asking why she couldn't go first. Through the views of these different women we see love, apathy, pain, loss, secrecy and a desperate attempt at living a life of happiness.Dreams built and burnt, the power of hope, the love between a mother and her child and the bond that can be so unbreakable between true friends.Their strengths will be sorely tried, their wit often stretched thin and their hearts broken. With the changing of seasons and the falling of the Steel Magnolias.
