In short: With epic proportions of Shakespearean tragedy, the film follows two unique characters whose rags-to-riches success stories reveal the innate virtues and flaws of the American Dream. The film begins with the family constructing the biggest house in America, a 90,000 sq. ft. palace. Over the next two years, their empire, fueled by the real estate bubble and cheap money, falters to the economic crisis. Major changes in lifestyle and character ensue within the cross-cultural household of family members and domestic staff.
