Overview

Howard Belsey, docente di storia dell'arte, vive la sradicata esistenza di un britannico costretto ad abitare per ragioni professionali negli Stati Uniti. Da trent'anni è sposato senza trasporto con Kiki, da cui ha avuto tre figli ma, in contrasto con lo scomposto e generazionale entusiasmo dei propri ragazzi, Howard si trova di fronte a una difficile valutazione della propria esistenza. Quando le vicende della vita porteranno lo studioso rivale Monty Kipps e la sua famiglia a trasferirsi anch'essi dall'Inghilterra agli Stati Uniti, deflagrerà un conflitto in cui si mescoleranno in modo irresistibile dati identitari, ideologici e squisitamente umani: amore, tradimento, malattia.
