Tagline: When you want it all but can't have it, there's only one way to handle life...invent it.

Plot: In the placid, potboiler-perfect 1950s hamlet of Haley, Illinois, life revolves around the wealthy and powerful Abbott family, which boasts three strapping brunette daughters in addition to its other assets. On the other side of the proverbial tracks live two fatherless brothers--one idolizes the Abbotts, while the other seeks to destroy the family by systematically deflowering and debasing the sisters.
