Description: The Grombergs are a highly successful family--except when it comes to communicating with each other. Alex Gromberg is a man caught in the middle. Navigating the tricky, ever-changing roles of father, son, and husband, he's trying to avoid the mistakes his father made while coming to terms with the ones he's already passed on to his own sons. Alex's wife, Rebecca, is a psychologist trying to balance a professional life with her marriage and raising her kids. Mitchell Gromberg, the patriarch and a retired partner of one of New York's leading law firms, is having difficulty coming to grips with his mortality. Evelyn is his devoted wife and has been his emotional rock throughout their marriage--and the peacemaker between him and Alex. Asher Gromberg, Alex's eldest son, is a rebellious college student trying to cope with life, love, and sex in a confused society. And Eli, Alex's 11-year old, is perhaps the "oldest" and most levelheaded of all the Gromberg men. Three generations of an American family, they all live separate lives, each in their own dysfunctional way. But every once in awhile, there comes a time to come together--to celebrate, to laugh, to fight, to cry, and to care for each other.
