Meet Jim

(the investment counselor)

For Jim, money is everything - even though he doesn't have any. New to the job and hungry to succeed, he assumes the appearance of a successful businessman in the hopes that he will one day become one.

When he meets his new client, Herbert Foster, Jim's shallow materialism is challenged, and he is forced to look inward and question his own values.

Meet Herbert

(the client)

Herbert Foster is a conservative family man with strict moral principles. Scarred by his father's abandonment, Herbert dedicates his life to sacrificing for his family, working two jobs to support them.

But there is a look of quiet desperation in his eyes, and we soon discover that beneath the surface is a torn, conflicted individual who hides his wealth from his family to conceal a strange, double life.

(his wife)

Alma Foster is a strict, God-fearing woman who upholds the straight-laced values of Herbert's late mother. Determinedly, she keeps within Herbert's small salary and supports him in his efforts to be a respectable father and husband.

Unaware of Herbert's fortune, she is skeptical of Jim's presence in their life and doesn't make an effort to hide it.
