Determined to be different from other people, the MacEntees have carved out a place for themselves in Irish life by the sheer force of their personalities. There's Deirdre, the aged matriarch and former star of the stage. Her estranged writer husband, Manus, now lives with a younger man. Their daughter, Alma, is an unapologetically ambitious television presenter, while Acushla plays the part of the perfect political wife. And there's Macdara, the fragile and gentle soul of the family. But when a series of misfortunes befall the family over the course of one long, hot summer, even the MacEntees will struggle to make sense of who they are.
