SYNOPSIS

The Winter family of Hampstead are enduring the proverbial family nightmare: the son and heir to the family business has turned his back on tradition and has abandoned the career of generations of his forebears. All for a woman! This is a lovely twist of a familiar tale when the family business is revealed. The title actually gives it away.
