When the children have come and gone, can a marriage pick up where it left off?

Ben is, at last, leaving home. At twenty-two, he's the youngest of the family.
His mother, Edie, an actress, is distraught.
His father, Russell, a theatrical agent, is rather hoping to get his wife back.
His brother, Matthew, is struggling in a relationship in which he achieves and earns less than his girlfriend.
And his sister, Rosa, is wrestling with debt and the end of a turbulent love affair.

Meet the Boyd family and the empty nest, twenty-first-century style.
