Cassandra's Dream

Synopsis: Two London brothers are hard-up for cash, and both have girls to look out for, too. When rich Uncle Howard comes to town and agrees to help them out, he admits his finances are under investigation, and he asks them to do him a favor and "take care of" an old business relation to keep his trouble under wraps - he says that they're family, and since he always takes care of them, the least they could do is help him out this once, as they're the only ones he can trust. The film follows their struggle with the immorality of this request and how each brother chooses to deal with it.

You know what happened to them?

Do you think life is grand, Kate?

- I think it's grand when I'm around you, yeah.

- Ahh. What an answer.

What an answer! What can I say?

The woman loves me.

Love you too, babes.

I'll tell you something. I never want

to go back to that stupid restaurant.

Oh, what do you want, Ian?

Do you remember when Mum

took us to visit Uncle Howard in California?

- How he lived his life?

- Oh, yeah.

I never let myself have dreams like that.

I mean, what's the point?

Well, I mean, it breaks my heart

to see Dad the way he is...

but as soon as he's back on his feet,

I've got to get out.

- I've got to make a life of my own.

- Out where?

Well, some friends of mine

invested in some hotels in California.

- California?

- So I might join them.

- It's a nice day as well.

- It's a long way from England, darling.

- Not too many clouds. Just right.

- Isn't it?

See, there's a pool with the cabanas here,

and there's a nine-hole golf course.

This is a great-looking property.

Nothing's going to happen until the end

of the year, but I'm telling you, mate...

- whoever invests in this is gonna make a fortune.

- Now I can see the potential.

There's one in the Caribbean,

the one in California has got a spa.

- So I'll keep you up to speed, yeah?

- Yeah.

Hey, where were you

when we were doing it?

- Why?

- Your mind was somewhere else.

It's this property development thing,

and it's gonna upset my dad.

But the years are passing.

You are so full of stress

all the time, even in bed.

The only time I've seen you relax

is on your boat.

Mmm. Terry's taking the boat

out tomorrow.

He's taking Kate's sister and brother out for

a sail. Wouldn't have much fun with them.

But I was wondering whether you'd maybe like

to come out to the country for the day with me.
