In its heyday, The Golden Hotel was the crown jewel of the Catskills vacation scene. For more than sixty years, the Goldman and Weingold families have presided over this glamorous resort which served as a second home for well-heeled guests and celebrities. But the Catskills are not what they used to be — and neither is the relationship between the Goldmans and the Weingolds. Long-buried secrets emerge, new dramas and financial scandal erupt, and business and pleasure clash when the hotel owners rediscover the magic of a bygone era even as they grapple with what may be their last resort.
