							Karen Bloom is not the coddling mother type. She believes that tough discipline is the true art of parenting. She expects her husband and her children to perform at 200 percent no matter the cost. But her unending quest for excellence causes her seemingly flawless family to rebel against her. Karen's husband Noel is a handsome doctor with a proclivity for alcohol and women. Their prodigy daughter, Bronte, excels yet longs to run away. Verity, Noel's teenage daughter from his first marriage, is starting to display aggressive behavior. And Karen's son from a previous relationship falls deeper into drug use. When tragedy strikes the Blooms, Karen's carefully constructed facade begins to fall apart-and once the deadly cracks appear, they are impossible to stop.
