Meet the Laments: the willful, beguiling family who will lead you from 1950s Rhodesia to the Persian Gulf, England and 1970s New Jersey on their restless search for the perfect place to settle. Howard is an engineer and dreamer, his wife Julia a fiery-spirited artist. Both are determined to shake off their colonial heritage and find a better society in which to raise their children: the anarchic twins, Julius and Marcus, and their older brother Will, who was secretly adopted as a baby. As Will grows up, he struggles to find his place in the family, yet when their constant uprootings and successive mishaps begin to pull the Laments apart, it is Will who strives to hold them together.
