Cast in the early 1970s afterburn of a charmed life of privilege, of leafy Larchmont, New York, and preppy Westhampton Beach, Long Island, The Indenture follows twelve-year-old William Kane Jr. "WK," through his parents poisonous divorce, a move to unbridled Scottsdale, Arizona, and a life with his brothers wrapped around the selfish and controlling needs of his mother's flickering ambition to remain elite, while being left penniless by her ex-husband's powerful family as retribution for her uprooting. WK endures the burden of his mother's failings, while his sister attempts to marry into one of the world's wealthiest families, masking her hatred of her mom, their terminally intoxicated father, evil uncle, and tattered brothers. The barriers to life for WK resonate deeply, where the chorus of tennis and riding lessons, summer camps, and extravagant vacations have been broken under financial duress and replaced with alcoholism, creditors, bullies, disloyalty, and no experience in the ways of the underprivileged. The Indenture delivers the raw uncertainty that only a child can feel as his family's fortune evaporates under the hot Arizona sun, where his only hope is the belief that their story is not his in the end.
