Eleanor and Rupert seemingly have a happy marriage amid the upper class of Manhattan. Six months after Rupert dies and leaves behind a grieving widow and five adult sons, a woman unknown to them claims Rupert had another family and had two other sons with her. As they all process this news, family secrets and lies become uncovered. This tangled tale of family dynamics and legacy reveals the inner most thoughts and actions of all of the family members and those caught up in the periphery of their lives. Whether family loyalty is enough to see them all through this difficult time is a question that needs to be answered.
