A mentally broken businessman mother of four is vouched to be saved from her life threatening newfound mental problems by her four boys: The oldest a succesful lawyor whom more then anything wishes for love and fears to become what his mother has become, reckless drug abusing second oldest son whom is with a girlfriend with family issues of her own and shares his taste for drugs and two younger boys whom live with her and are pre-teen boys subjected to the dealt out violence a result of her psychotic episodes.
Along to help is that of her young 21 year old psychologist of whom she takes a sexual interest towards and to whom already possesses a young 21 year old wife whom set their eye on obtaining custody of her two younger sons under her care.
Grandmother Ethel whom moves in with her mentally disturbed daughter and the two suffering sons whom are two of her grandboys whom she had been unable to see for many years also fights to save her daughter.
Ultimatley in the end the overral moral lesson is dealt to the characters that not everyone can be saved and everyone has their own life to live so they must live it and not be dragged down.
The story plays out with what begins as Jessica discovering her boss/fiance cheating with her workfriend/bestfriend.
Jessica then goes out posing as a prostitute to pick up a guy and get back at him.
However as she does pick up a random group of guys she attempts to back out upon following them back to their apartment.
She is indeed beaten and raped and her mind completely breaks down.
All she sees is vivid flashbacks of the abuse she once copped from one of her mother's secret boyfriends as a child.
She takes it out upon her two youngest sons whom reside with what begins as vicious beatings.
Her mother then moves in and she begins seeing a psychologist whom suspects of her hurting her two sons but cannot quite prove it.
The young psychologist himself also suspects the grandmother to be a source of abuse to the mother which began a cycle of violence and plans with his wife whom simply cannot fall pregnant to fight for the custody of the two boys.
The two older sons whom are dealing with their own problems and were written by their two younger brothers regarding what's happening to their mother come down themselves moving into the area to try and assist.
As she finally seems to have been fixed of her mental breakdowns and psychotic behaviour she goes and violently murders the four men whom bashed and raped her.
As the police come upon discovering her fingerprints and shoeprints at the crime scene she sits upon the house stairs crying as Grandmother Ethel breaks into a psychotic rage like similiar to that of her daughter's behaviour and hits her.
The two engage in a fight to which Ethel is severley injured.
Mother Jessica phones her two older sons requesting they come to the house immediatley.
They come along (her son Tobias bringing his girlfriend Sophia) and she calls out her two younger boys Even and Rhys whom she embraces in a tight hug which then becomes that of all the boys.
She tells the boys to live their lives.
She then tells Sophie to make sure her son drops the drugs and then the police arrive which distracts them all apart from Jessica.
Jessica silently slips away and heads up the stairs.
A gunshot sounds from upstairs and the police come charging in armed.
They escort Sophie and the four sons outside and the paramedics acquire Grandmother Ethel whom they escort into an ambulance.
The four boys and Sophie accompany her in the ambulance and then all the boys narrate what happened following their mother's suicide and everything.
They state that Grandmother Ethel recovered and returned to Grandpa Patrick whom had been one their mother never wanted to see.
Grandmother Ethel died of her injuries come five months following and Callum went onto find love with a Chef Girl whom fashioned him four children, Tobias cleaned up his act and married Sophia whom always cleaned up her act and mended her broken relationship with her family, Even goes onto graduate from Harvard University and become involved in politics and young Rhys goes on to attend a prestigous high school with a hope of having a future in law which seems probable due to his good straight grades.
