At just another drinks party that he chose not to go to, Jeremy catches sight of Maria and is instantly allured by the frisson of sexual excitement. His rash and immediate reaction sets off an unstoppable and far-reaching chain of events that will divert the course of not just his life, but those of his family and unforgettable characters.
