Synopsis: Deathbed Dimes exposes us to the reality that if you can outlive your relatives, friends, and sometimes even strangers, your odds of hitting the inheritance jackpot are better than playing the lottery! Joely Zeller, a beautiful and ambitious 32 year-old attorney and only daughter of Hollywood film royalty, is determined to build a successful career, find love and get married without her family’s help.
To emerge from under her parents’ cloud of notoriety, Joely flees to New York upon graduating from Stanford Law School to practice Estates and Trust law at a blue chip Wall Street law firm. Enduring ninety-hour work weeks for the next six years, she “sacrifices” her love life (jilted by her fiancé for his best man), only to have her career efforts foiled by her male and incredibly incompetent counterpart.
A serendipitous encounter with a former professor reminds her about the impending inevitable demise of ageing baby boomers, pointing towards the unprecedented wealth transfer that would follow. Suddenly Joely sees her golden ticket to self-actualisation. She realizes that with her experience and Hollywood connections, she could start her own law firm back in L.A. With her two best friends and former law classmates as partners, Joely sets about helping the recently disowned, dispossessed and penniless sharpen their claws as they stake their claims to the fortune of the dearly departed.
