Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Jack and Meredith are twins. Their father died before they were born and now they both have to watch as their mother sinks further in to the grip of early-onset dementia. Jack's career has crashed and burned, all that remains is a Maserati and a nervous disposition. Meredith's world is also crumbling - the decomposing yogurt in her fridge a symbol of her newly-expired marriage. Her children, Jemima and Luke, offer little support, too consumed with the world of online dating and amateur taxidermy. One day, a throwaway comment starts Jack wondering if their father really died. As they begin to untangle the revelations, the twins are forced to ponder both the past and the future: their memories of their mother, their hopes for finding their father, and the fear of what's in their bloodline.
