G and F didn’t like each other. Then tragedy brought them together.
They cast their differences aside and became inseparable. They decided to build a family.
They vowed to be the best parents in the world. They were young and believed their family would be the happiest in history.
They were wise too. They welcomed their young with open arms and closed fists full of caveats.
(If their own bitter experience had taught them anything, it was that successful family life meant balancing freedom and constraint.)
Each year a new member was born. G and F wanted a big, happy family and they weren’t finished yet.
Their eldest, UK was a strapping lad. At first he imbibed his parents’ values. As the family grew, he began to feel stifled. He wanted more independence.
During a romantic weekend away in Maastricht, G and F conceived a fresh plan to unite them all.
It was the last straw for UK. He decided he wanted out.
When the kids hit their teens, G and F noticed that a crisis in family values was looming across the waters. They blamed fast food and the American consumer culture.
Within a few months, things got worse. Ir, who had fought through a shaky start in life to become everyone’s favourite teenage success story, turned out to be living precariously close to financial ruin. G and F were disappointed and wondered if they were too lax in tolerating her constant partying.
Then S and P went off the rails too. G and F wondered if they’d spoilt the children.
But the family pulled together and bailed the kiddies out.
The mess wasn’t over yet. Now Gr, the fiery middle child was in trouble. Financial ruin kind of trouble. Gr had been lying to his parents for years.
That was the last straw for G and F, who began to impose discipline.
On top of it all, they agreed to adopt another child.
Cro, a youngster with a troubled past had wanted to be part of the perfect family for years.
When the time finally came though, Cro realised that things weren’t so perfect after all.
Can they all pull together and become a model family once again? A vacation in Davos seems to be their only hope..
