'His last prayer was more than forty years ago, and it went unanswered, so there is no use trying again. He can see his home in the distance: the marquee in the garden, the yacht at anchor. It is all like a simple parable. The rich man, the fat man, gets his comeuppance. Absurd, that he will be found dead wearing nothing but Speedos - it almost makes him laugh.' Charles Bradshaw, an ageing tycoon, is haunted by his past. When he suffers a heart attack, he abruptly retires and announces that he will give his fortune to charity.

This leads to conflict with his wife and adult children. A terrible secret from his past comes back, along with an old girlfriend. Unnerved by their renewed affection for each other, Charles and Anna struggle to overcome their remorse and to make amends, but tension inevitably flares. Meanwhile, Charles's son is taking over the company, he is intoxicated with his newfound power, and Charles might have to intervene to save him from self-destruction.
