What if all your in-laws are outlaws?
Jack McCracken: a man of principle in a corrupt world. But not for long. Moments after taking over his father-in-law’s business he’s approached by a private detective armed with some compromising information. Jack’s integrity fades away as he discovers his extended family to be thieves and adulterers, looting the business from their suburban homes. Rampant self-interest takes over and comic hysteria builds to a macabre climax.
Well, that’s one down, isn’t it. Nine to go. Next! Thou shalt not kill. What about that then? Let’s have a crack at that one next, shall we?
