George McLeod's easy life turns to chaos when his bodybuilder cousin, Buck Root, returns to Minnesota with his sexy girlfriend, Joy, and her mother, Livia, whose sense of reality blurs into the pages of a western novel. For the first time, George understands the rage to live life to its fullest - the rage that has consumed Joy, Buck Root, and Livia. With tragicomic grandeur, Duff Brenna weaves the story of four people who come together in a cataclysmic moment of truth that tests their compassion and capacity to love.
