A dysfunctional family living on a picturesque island in the Bronx spares no expense in avoiding the truth about their messed-up lives.

The family patriarch, Vince is a prison guard who is secretly plotting a new career as an actor.

As Vince takes acting lessons on the down low, his daughter moonlights as a stripper and his son harbors a secret fetish for 300-pound neighbour.

Under normal circumstances Vincent's wife, Joyce, would be the family rock, but lately she's been preoccupied with uncovering the identity of the hired help, a secret that only her husband knows.
