about

Seymour Levov, modelo a seguir por todos los muchachos judíos de New Jersey, es un gran atleta y mejor hijo, y es el sólido heredero de la fábrica de guantes que su padre levantó desde la nada.

Seymour ha rebasado la mitad del siglo xx sin conflictos que puedan estropear la vida placentera que comparte con su mujer Dawn, ex Miss New Jersey, y con su hija Meredith.

Seymour Levov, Sin embargo, precisamente ahora, todo lo que lo rodea se derrumbará estrepitosamente.
