Louis Lasker loves his family dearly – apart from when he doesn’t. There’s a lot of history. His father’s marriages, his mother’s death; one brother in exile, another in denial; everything said, everything unsaid. And now his father has taken a decision which threatens to blow the family apart.
We join the Laskers for what might be their final days together. One last chance to fix things. It’s a matter of life and death . . .
