In anger, desperation and reflection he realizes that he has to endure the surprising revelations brought on by family and friends. In this black comedy, Michael bears witness to the hard truth about his personal and business life... He learns of a close colleague’s betrayal ... the seriousness of an unrequited love; the neglected needs of a loving wife and the tragic loss of a failed pregnancy.
