Summary
A perfect 18-year marriage suddenly becomes unglued. Rather than just get divorced, Oliver and Barbara Rose declare war, fighting to the bitter end over their huge mansion and every possession in it. Not even the calculating guidance of Oliver's lawyer can stop this uncompromising twosome as their vicious battle sends them on an increasingly dark and dangerous path
