It's April, 1959, in northwestern Connecticut. Imagine the fury of Richard Lavington's four children when they learn about an unknown fifth heir to their late father's estate. And, in addition to sharing the will proceeds with this interloper, he's to live at the family's home, with them, as a proper full time family member. Worse, this interloper's a common laborer with no background, raised in an institution, and living in squalor with an old drunk Raggie. He didn't even know who his father was until a busybody attorney found him. His claim on the estate is based on a brief affair their father had with an employee. Dad was like that. Dad enjoyed liaisons outside his marriage. Why did this affair count for anything? Dan, the newly discovered fifth son, was eight years old when his mom placed him in an institution, and then disappeared. She had never spoken about his father, so Dan was completely amazed when some lawyer showed up, announcing his father had died. Furthermore, Dan figured significantly as an heir to his father's estate, which also required him to immediately move into the family mansion as a new found fifth sibling. Failure to follow the rules of the will would cast him out, with no inheritance. No one is happy to see Dan. Gordon, the oldest son, and designated referee of Dan's behavior, distains Dan's lack of breeding. Burton, the second son, is far more physical. Dan needs to get off the premises fast if he wants to avoid Burton's fists. Gretchen, the only daughter, is a highly regarded attorney. She promises to legally challenge his participation in the will. But, Sydney, the third son, surprises everybody by producing a cashier's check made out to Dan for 250 thousand dollars. He would give the check to Dan only if he renounces his inheritance and moves out. The family is guarded in its support for Sydney.
