The Smiths are what their surname already suggests: a ‘normal’ family like any other. Perhaps even a bit too normal. Most of their many acquaintances would actually call them the perfect family. They are beautiful, successful at everything they do, have a lovely home, and are good people through and through - the kind that can always afford a smile for everyone they meet. But what makes them infinitely popular in their (perfect) hometown Sunnybrook is that they enjoy spending time with one another so much. Want to see a caring dad or a devoted wife to refresh your heart after a long day of dealing with rude people in the nearby city? Just walk past the Smiths’ home! Before you know it, you will probably be invited inside for a cup of coffee (or glass of home-made lemonade if that’s your thing), a freshly baked cookie and a shoulder to cry on. This is why everyone at Sunnybrook wants to visit the Smiths, be like the Smiths, talk about the Smiths or eat least hear what they are up to.
The only problem is, the Smiths have a secret - or rather, a whole bunch of secrets - one per family member, to be precise. They seek to hide these secrets from their family and friends as well as from the Sunnybrook public, which holds them in such high regard. However, as Baby Jonathan’s first birthday celebration draws near, to which the whole town is invited, one secret after another is threatening to erupt…
But of course, perhaps the reason why the Smiths fit into Sunnybrook so well is that no one here has been completely open with one another…
