His job has kept him from his son too long, and the next time he’s hired, there is generous compensation. In fact, he may never have to work again. The only problem is, he may have just become the reason for an impending war, and before he can enjoy the time he’s missed with his son, he’s forced to get them both away from the mess he’s caused before it’s too late – and before his son finds out what he’s been doing at work.
