Sometimes it's hard for us to feel connected.
We feel alienated in our home, apart from our own family.
Morgan Buffkin (Jeff Hephner, "Nip/Tuck", "The O.
") is no exception.
He's the favored son helping to run Prestige Payday Loans, his eccentric family's enormously successful short-term loan company.
While his mother Bobette (Laurie Metcalf, "Stop-Loss," "Desperate Housewives," "Roseanne"), the brains behind the business, dotes on him and sings his praises, Morgan has never quite fit in and he's doubting the ever-shifting stories she's woven about his childhood in the Buffkin household.
Furthermore, he's having second thoughts about being the "heavy" for Prestige--running down ne'er-do-wells and gambling addicts--in an era of subprime mortgage lending and four dollar gasoline.
