Months before, Leo got behind the wheel of his car while he was drunk, and the ensuing accident has endangered the siblings trust fund, which they all desperately need.

“Four-score and seven years ago, our fathers brought forth on this Continent a New Nation”…except that isn’t exactly what happened. When the original Thirteen Colonies united in a battle to free themselves from the tyranny of British rule, they had a common goal–to be free of the yoke of oppression–but not a plan to become a new nation.
