From legless Xenia, who joyously plays a dead biker for Halloween, to Joe, a 15 year old struggling with cystic fibrosis. Joe can be a super sweet child one minute and become a danger to himself and others in the family. He regularly makes angry threats and the siblings have come to make the best of their situations in the comfort of Susan's home until eventually, he passes away.
