Maureen Stapleton, Stefanie Powers and Melissa Gilbert represent three generations of women in one family in this made-for-TV movie. Recently widowed, Stapleton invites her divorced daughter Powers, and Powers' illegitimate daughter Gilbert, for a weekend get-together. The catalyst for the film's cascade of bickering, reminiscences, and regrets is Stapleton's announcement that she plans to move from the family home and into a condominium. In addition to starring, Stefanie Powers also came up with the film's premise and functioned as co-producer. A "General Foods Showcase" TV presentation, Family Secrets first aired on May 13, 1984.
