A dark comedy, tells the tale of the dysfunctional Westin clan all of whom are highly intelligent, sensitive people that have the ability to make each other completely miserable. When the patriarch of the family mysteriously disappears, the Weston clan gathers together to simultaneously support and attack one another.  As the clan bickers and jokes, old truths come to the surface. All these nasty truths—and more—bubble up and spew over in all sorts of excruciating ways.
