Description Don is an executive. His mind should be on his firm's latest line of garden sprinklers. But his wife has just told him she's leaving to have tantric sex in Tuscany. When he tells his three children, they aren't surprised; they are a self-absorbed trio only interested in Dad's money.
The children will put up with Dad quitting his job. The children will put up with Dad wreaking havoc with their private lives. They will even put up with Dad trying to salvage his family. But when Don bets everything he owns on a horse race, what will three selfish twenty-somethings do then?
