Red Stevens has died, and the older members of his family receive their millions with greedy anticipation. But a different fate awaits young Jason, who his great-uncle Stevens believed might be the last vestige of hope in the family.
"Although to date your life seems to be a sorry excuse for anything I would call promising, there does seem to be a spark of something in you that I hope we can fan into a flame. For that reason, I am not making you an instant millionaire."
What Red Stevens does gives Jason is the ultimate gift.
