Story


Jason thought his inheritance was the gift of money and lots of it... but Jason thought wrong. Based on the best-selling book "The Ultimate Gift" by Jim Stovall, the story sends trust fund baby Jason Stevens on an improbable journey of discovery, having to answer the ultimate question: "What is the relationship between wealth and happiness?"

Jason had a very simple relationship with his impossibly wealthy Grandfather, Howard "Red" Stevens. He hated him. No heart-to-heart talks, no warm fuzzies, just cold hard cash. So of course he figured that when Red died, the whole "reading of the will" thing would be another simple cash transaction. He figured that his Grandfather's money would allow him to continue living in the lifestyle to which he had become accustomed. But what Red left him was anything but... simple. Red instead devised a plan for Jason to experience a crash course on life. Twelve tasks, which Red calls "gifts," each challenging Jason in an improbable way, the accumulation of which would change him forever.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..designed to wring tears out of viewers and leave them a little sadder but wiser..”
by Barbara Vancheri [Pittsburgh Post-Gazette]
“..falls far short of a satisfying experience, thanks to an overly simplistic story and pedestrian staging..”
by Pam Grady [Reel]
“..comes across as a television-ready effort that would work perfectly for Hallmark..”
by Frank Scheck [The Hollywood Reporter]
