The movie tells the story of Collin Fenwick, a young boy who is forced to live with his eccentric aunts (Piper Laurie and Sissy Spacek) in a small southern town. The aunts are known for their peculiar habits and odd behavior, and live in a large treehouse in the woods. Collin is initially apprehensive about living with them, but soon grows to love them and their unique way of life.

Things take a turn when Collin's greedy cousins (played by Sean Patrick Flanery and Joe Don Baker) come to town in an attempt to take control of the family estate. The cousins attempt to discredit the aunts' way of life and have them declared insane, in the hopes of gaining control of the estate.
