But when his request is denied by the author's family, Omar must leave behind his life in Kansas appeal to them in person--at their crumbling estate in Ocho Rios, Uruguay. There Omar meets Gund's wife, his mistress, and his brother, all living in close quarters, and his relationship with each of them develops all kinds of unforeseen complications.
