"When the sun goes down on my life, you'll all come apart like ripped balloons."
When stingy self-made millionaire and widower Leon Farrell dies, he leaves behind a legacy of family dysfunction--and a missing will. It's soon clear that his three grown children, Edgar, Gunther, and Shirley, don't handle loss well--the possible loss of a fortune, that is. And when Edgar hires a private investigator to track down the will, it's just the beginning of a search that will lead the siblings to re-visit their childhoods, uncover buried secrets, and ultimately learn for themselves what it means to be a family. For as tensions escalate between the brothers--with their peace-keeping sister caught in the middle--an unexpected conflict of interest is brewing that will shock them all--and either bring them closer together or tear them apart for good. . .
