Meet John Gleason: patriarch, business mogul and politician. Calling his family together for a weekend at the country homestead, he will divide his empire. But as the Gleasons are pitted against one another, passions quickly rise and the family’s fortune becomes the least of their concerns. History, anguish and jealousy crack the Gleasons’ perfect façade, revealing a family whose deep pockets have protected some very dark secrets.
