Ricky Lam had it all -- a thriving film career, the adoration of countless fans, incredible wealth, and a cocaine and alcohol problem that almost destroyed him. Luckily, he also had his older brother Philip -- who strong-armed him into an addiction clinic. After 15 years, Ricky wants to mend the rift that erupted between the brothers during those dark days. But when tragedy strikes, erasing Ricky's dreams of winning Philip's forgiveness, he resets his priorities and dedicates himself to his brother's dream -- the construction of a unique resort in South Carolina called the Crown Jewel. When Ricky steps into his brother's shoes he encounters unsettling contradictions, as well as his sister-in-law Roxy Lam, who leads him to the mystery at the center of his brother's life and into a love affair far richer and more challenging than any he has experienced before.
