Head of the family before his time, Odin Freeburn is being pulled in all directions. One brother is in jail, another brother is in love with the daughter of a family enemy and his wife has run away, leaving him to raise two daughters. His sister-in-law is in love with him, his car repair shop is about to go under and his mother is giving him advice, despite the fact that she died in 1990. Can he find a way to honour his promise to her that he will keep the family together?

Odin Freeburn is being pulled in all directions and the mechanics workshop that keeps them housed and fed is up for sale. With the prospect of no job or home, his family wants to know what he plans to do.
