A portrait of an unconventional family, Peace, Love, & Misunderstanding tells the story of Diane (Keener), a conservative New York City lawyer who is in desperate need of an escape after her husband asks for a divorce. Along with her two children (Olsen and Wolff), she takes refuge at her estranged hippie mother Grace's (Fonda) farmhouse, where she is exposed to a motley crew of free thinkers. What was meant to be a stress-free getaway quickly turns into a reminder of why Diane escaped her mother's hippie lifestyle in the first place, but the reunion forces her, her children, and Grace to search for peace with each other and with themselves.
