Joseph Jacobson is the twelfth of thirteen siblings, all of whom are employed by their fathers successful Colorado advertising company. But underneath the success runs a poisonous undercurrent of jealousy; Joseph is his fathers favorite and the focus of his brothers envy and hatred.

Alone and lonely, Joseph must start a new life.
