If Marie Curie stopped by your tree house, would you let her in? Tough-as-nails physicist Brit and sculptor Chuck Swanson are the parents to Max, a condensed matter physicist, and Sugar, a designer, who return to their childhood home to pack up the house on the eve of their parents' divorce. But when the characters reveal shocking truths about themselves, the entire family is forced to confront questions of honesty, allegiance, and madness.
