When Marty Pascal brings a guest home for Thanksgiving, his family was not expecting to meet Lesly, his fiancee. His twin sister, Jackie-O, who has just recently returned from a stay in a mental institution and has a very special relationship with Marty, is especially distraught. His mother and other brother attempt to keep the peace, while a hurricane approaches their palatial estate, and a series of seductions and games start to spin out of control.
«The House of Yes» focuses on a wealthy, but sequestered, family with ties to American politics, whose lives are led just beyond the edges of conventional society. In the grand tradition of writers like the Brontes and Shirley Jackson, MacLeod uses that setting to tell us a love story that is both sensational and devastating.
