As Mildred pulls herself up by the bootstraps, first as an unflappable waitress and eventually as the well-heeled owner of a successful restaurant chain, the ingratitude of her materialistic firstborn becomes a venomous serpent's tooth, setting in motion an endless cycle of desperate overtures and heartless recriminations.
