Bling, bust-ups and make-ups, this is a scandalous slice of life of a family that seems to have it all – obscene wealth, talent, good fortune and beauty – until that is the head of the family falls or is perhaps pushed off a yacht and disappears into the Riviera night. The close family including the fourth wife are left heartbroken. Except nothing where money is involved is quite as it seems. Women, loads of them come out of the closet, each one with their own secrets to reveal and to set the family on a downward spiral of destruction. Can the family be saved or is it too late.
The LaFata family have it all - obscene wealth, talent, good fortune and beautiful genes. Or at least they used to...until the head of the family, Giancarlo 'Fatty' La Fata, vanishes over the side of his yacht one night and disappears into the dark Riviera night. His widow (and fourth wife) Jade, his son, Carlo Jr, and daughters, Francesca and Angelica, are left awash in a sea of heartbreak and confusion. Did Fatty fall, or was he pushed? But this question only leads to more - for around a strong man, are even stronger women. Mothers, daughters, lovers, wives and sisters - Fatty has left a web of women who all have their own secrets. When one of these women steps forward to clean up the mess Fatty left behind she will meet the drug dealers and illegal gamblers that lurk behind the glamour of the French Riviera, she will risk her heart as well as her life. Can she save the La Fata family from destruction? Or is it already too late?
