An elderly financial tycoon before his death makes a will. At the insistence of the priest, he includes the church in his will, but makes the following reservation: the money due to the church are received by his children, if within a year after his death they give birth to children. The situation is complicated by the fact that the tycoon’s son is homosexual and his daughter is a lesbian . Brother and sister begin the struggle for the father’s inheritance. They are tucked up by two loser realtors who also want to grab part of the inheritance. One of them, Reed Richmond, dreams of an acting career and does not want to miss such a chance. He and his friend convince the elderly heirs of the millionaire to adopt them. At the same time, a seductive beauty appears, who also does not want to miss the opportunity to get a share. She tries to seduce Vincent and persuades him to give her a chance.
