    Karen Bloom is not the coddling mother type. She believes that tough discipline is the true art of parenting. She expects her husband and her children to perform at 200 percent, no matter the cost. But her unending quest for excellence causes her seemingly flawless family to rebel against her. When tragedy strikes the Blooms, Karen's carefully constructed facade begins to fall apart - and once the deadly cracks appear, they are impossible to stop.
