At the end of the Second World War, Cyril Conroy combines luck and a single canny investment to begin an enormous real estate empire, propelling his family from poverty to enormous wealth.

Meant as a surprise for his wife, the house sets in motion the undoing of everyone he loves.

The two wealthy siblings are thrown back into the poverty their parents had escaped from and find that all they have to count on is one another.
