A politician’s family is torn apart by the abuse of power in this provocative, contemporary new drama about the hunger for success and fear of failure.
What happens to a family when privilege is abused and trust vanishes… when cheating becomes a code to live by and deception a justified means to an end? They have it all – the perfect family life – the perfect future. Or so it seems.
High achieving, successful, loving parents, they only want the very best for their son. That’s what everyone wants after all… but who’s it really for? When desire allows you to lose sight of what is morally right, when manipulation takes over, the consequences can be devastating.
What is the true price of success?
