Can death bring a family together or will it tear them apart?

Every family has its secrets.

When Richard Asquith dies in a car crash, it sets in motion a series of events that threaten to destroy his family and those around him.

Richard has left behind children who dislike him, women who are bitter and a question lingering over the disappearance of his daughter many years ago. 

As the family gather at his wake, secrets from the past come to light and the tension starts to boil over. 

Can Richard’s death bring a fractured family together, or will it tear them apart?
