Riassunto: Orphaned by a terrorist explosion that killed their parents on an Italian train, Sam McWilliams and his three younger siblings create the dark, quirky PLUM & JAGGERS series of comedy sketches about a family of children whose parents are never at home. The family troupe's fame gathers momentum as they rise from open-mike nights, to small comedy clubs to late-night television spots, until it threatens them with unforeseen and new dangers. With compassion, warmth and wit, Susan Richards Shreve has crafted a powerful story about family tragedy and one person's refusal to accept fate.
