Occasionally even close families keep secrets from one and other, the small white lies that most see as a necessary evil to keep a close bond and family dysfunctions at bay, but when these secrets inevitably come out, they cause more problems than they should.
Vince Rizzo is just one of those men who keep such secrets from their wives, his day job as a correctional officer doesn't really fulfil Rizzo's creative ambitions; he's always dreamt of becoming an actor and this is one of the things he'd never tell his wife. When he takes up acting lessons in Manhattan Vince thinks it'll be better to keep this to himself and he tells his wife that he's playing poker. Vince also learns his illegitimate son Tony is serving time in the prison where he works, feeling like he should do the right thing Vince invites Tony into his family life without informing him that he's his son. Cracks soon start to appear in all these seemingly small lies and Vince's life is soon to take a turn, perhaps it's time to come out and tell the truth before all normality is removed from the Rizzo household.
