Set in Palm Springs over Christmas weekend, “Other Desert Cities” centers on the powerful Wyeth family. Lyman, an actor-turned-ambassador during the Reagan administration, and his wife Polly, a former screenwriter, are set to celebrate the holidays with their adult children Brooke & Trip. Without informing her parents, daughter Brooke, has written a memoir exposing painful family secrets. Trip tries to stay out of the crossfire as their alcoholic aunt, Polly’s sister Silda, eggs Brooke on. In a series of confrontations, the Wyeths sift through conflicting memories of the past and face serious choices about how to go forward.
