As the stalwart brother who stayed home to tend to the family's broadcasting business, Hank Montague shoulders the full responsibility for keeping fortune and family together under challenging circumstances. Plagued by issues with his prodigal brother and the business, Hank Montague escapes into the passions of two women in his life. One lady he chose, while the other was chosen for him; however, this bed of roses is overgrown with thorns. Frustrated with Hank, the ladies develop competing schemes for restoring the five trillion dollars Americans lost in the 2008 recession.
When an heir disappears, two infamous evangelists are retained for their detective prowess. These gentlemen nudge the plot along with an artful retelling of history. They'll reveal unconventional applications for ordinary household appliances and reinvent fire while uncovering a plot plaguing America's youth.
The plot is a minefield of decoys like the street-smart New York detective determined to cut himself a fat slice of the family treasure. Toss in a savvy uncle with quiet charm and an eye for the ladies, and Hank has his hands full.
Hank is the heir to billions, but he is the unprepared heir to an insightful treasure that towers over the family fortune. Cashing in means having to navigate a foggy bog of submerged decoys that lack the innocence of Gump's perennial box of chocolates.
