Helpless by Vello Ruus:

Should we help others? Why? And when is intervention a bad idea?

Michael returns home after a year abroad to find Katy living in his house with her newborn baby. Due to Katy's depression, she is unable to cope with her life and, once again, Michael finds himself having to help.

To his relief, his daughter Ricki shows up with a surprise of her own: she is engaged to an Italian named Michele. Soon after, Michael's son David arrives with his girlfriend Sandy, whose sexual energy explodes the hidden conflicts in the family leaving a new beginning for some and a dead-end for others.
