Movie Info

An idealistic gentle twin must take on his avaricious, crooked brother to save the unspoiled estate of their adopted mother in this dramatic comedy. The twins, Ruben and Robby Martinez were the sons of migrant workers and were adopted by former dance prima donna/fabulously wealthy landowner Mona Rowland Downey. They grew up on forty thousand acres of pristine California wilderness coastline. Because Robby is the shrewd businessman of the duo, Mona has him manage the land. The trouble begins when Mona discovers that ruthless Robby has been embezzling much of her billion dollar fortune and that he and his cohorts are planning to exploit the wilderness, oust all of the migrant workers, some of whom are his relatives, and turn the property into massive real estate developments after she dies. She gets her revenge by quietly changing the will so that good-hearted Ruben will inherit the land and this is when the trouble really begins as Ruben is going to turn the vast tract into a common treasury and help out the hard-working farmworkers who have worked it for so long. But though a genuinely nice guy, Ruben has managed to get himself in debt with a loan shark and so must contend with that in addition to his brother.more
