Imagine a business that is prospering and whose family owners have more money than they know what to do with. From the outside they have "made it". In reaching this point, however, there is a trail of broken relationships, family members who are scared and hurting, family members doing work that they don't like or not working at all, and a family that, overall, is adrift with no sense of purpose.
