More than half a century
ago, Papa Drovek opened his small grocery store at the junction of two
country roads. As he bought more and more land, the roads became
highways, and now the Droveks own a complex of hotels, restaurants, a
truck stop, a shopping centre and two gas stations. Papa's eldest son,
Charles, is president of the Crossroads Corporation. His son Leo enjoys
his token job, and daughter Joan manages the commercial tenants' leases.
But when younger son Pete's wife gets restless and lonely, she becomes
an easy pawn in a sleazy scheme of robbery and murder. The target? Old
Papa Drovek himself.
