Who will get the “small fortune”?

Stanley Huang is a father, husband, ex-husband, and a man of all-inclusive vacations and bargain luxury goods. A man who is newly diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.

Stanley’s family includes his son Fred, who feels that he should be making more; his daughter Kate, who is managing a fickle boss, an unfocussed husband, and two children; ex-wife Linda, who is familiar and doubtful of Stanley; and second wife Mary, giver of foot rubs and ego massages.

For years, Stanley has insisted that he’s worth a small fortune. Now, as the Huangs come to terms with Stanley’s approaching death, they are also starting to fear that Stanley’s “small fortune” may not be a fortune at all. A compelling tale of cultural expectations, career ambitions and our relationships with the people who know us best.
