The story is about a good man with an impeccable work ethic and sterling integrity about to come face to face with a family tragedy as he goes through his last week of work leading to retirement. The story opens on Monday and closes on Sunday. Mr. and Mrs. Anderson have two married children: Mary Beth, the dentist who lives in Montreal, and Michael, the stockbroker from Toronto—the 'black sheep' of the family. Michael's drug problems not only affect his marriage and his career but the peace and tranquillity of Mr. and Mrs. Anderson in a pernicious way. The week leading to Mr. Anderson's retirement, Michael gets fired. The day of Mr. Anderson's retirement party (Saturday), Michael commits suicide. Even a good man (the story tells us) is powerless to control what the vagaries of life may throw his way. The story is a tragedy. It is a compelling story that touches the heart and tells of the human condition with compassion and feeling.
