Everything is fine. Everyone is fine.
Harry Tabor should be perfectly happy: he's about to be named Man of the Decade, his wife and children are all distinguished in their own right and they've reunited in Palm Springs to celebrate Harry's achievement.
But almost immediately, cracks begin to appear. All of them have something to hide, including the long-buried secret that made Harry relocate the family so many years ago - and eventually they have to face the truth... don't they?
