Billionaire Red Stevens wants to bequeath at least one member of his extended family "the ultimate gift:" something he perceives as immensely more valuable than material wealth. Jason holds a deep-seated hatred for his newly-deceased grandfather, so he's surprised to learn that he's been mentioned in his late grandfather's will. Far from a straightforward gift, Red's bequest comes in the form of a series of mysterious recorded instructions, the first of which requires Jason to hop on a plane for Texas the very next morning without a hint of the trip's purpose. Dropped into a ranch in the middle of nowhere, Jason's encounters the first real manual labor he's ever done in his life. When he returns from Texas, Jason finds his home cleared out, his car confiscated, and instructions to produce one true friend. While Jason is reduced to sleeping in the park, a young child and her mother make his acquaintance and lead him to re-examine his personal prejudices and perceptions of what's truly important in life.
