Rufus Humphrey has a tough job: he's the father of Jenny and Dan, the head of a humble, middle class family living in a crumbling apartment on the Upper West Side of New York.

His children are outsiders looking into the lives of the rich and glamorous, sliding into the role of Ryan Atwood from The OC.

Rufus is drawn to Serena's glamor and the world that exists just outside the reach of he and his kids.
