ead of the Moon family, Eddie Moon's bubbly character livens up every room he's in. Although he's a charismatic cockney, Eddie also has a touch of class. As well as being popular with the ladies, Eddie is a polite gentleman and once he makes a friend, he makes them for life.

Due to his past, Eddie is a different man today than he was before. His first love ended tragically when his first wife killed herself. Wracked by guilt and blamed by their son, Michael, he detached himself from the family.

Eddie further estranged himself from Michael as he resolved to become a man who people would be glad to know - someone they would respect and admire - and in doing so started a new family.

Reconnecting with son Michael years later, he fears his dark past will resurface. Can Eddie be the Dad he wants to be despite his kids growing up? And, when his past rears its ugly head, can Eddie preserve his hero status in his children's eyes?
