Eighteen year old Toby Harris can't believe it when she is told that her father is going to prison for embezzling. Apparently, he had been embezzling for years. Toby's mother swears her to secrecy because she doesn't want anyone to know. That's the family way. Never take risks, never let people know what's going on.
