The Last of the Unforgettable
(Previously called Perfect Girls) The Declingtons have a reputation. They're blonde-haired, blue-eyed, and nicknamed the Perfect Girls and Boys of their city. Led by their eldest generation, Caroline and Carver Declington, the family follows a strict set of rules, including a vow to never leave the family.
Ten years ago, the family was thrown into chaos when Caroline and Carver's son Steven left the family, taking with him his wife, young daughter, and eighteen-year-old niece, Charlotte. No one understood why someone would want to leave a family that had everything.
Now, Steven's daughter, Early, is meeting the family for the first time, desperate to make up for all that she missed out on, but things are much more complicated than what she expected. There's Lindsey, who's shunned by the family for dating a man her grandparents won't accept. There's Alexandra, the eldest granddaughter of Caroline and Carver, widowed mysteriously five months prior. There's Claire, seen as the family's brightest star, who has secret desires her family could never condone. Beneath the layers of perfection, the family seems to have a lot going on.
When a movie is made based on a memoir written by Charlotte, the family's secrets are thrown from the darkness and into the spotlight. Fans are horrified by the truths Charlotte has told about her family, and the murky, age-old secrets that finally come to light. As the family copes with what they now know about themselves and each other, the horrible things beneath their perfection tells a story of the lengths people will go to to seem perfect.
