Sister, employers, acquaintances are but co stars among a cast of thousands to have passed through his busy bed. His foster brother has to make do with his leavinngs as he pursues his existence of squalid mediocrity, no match for the dazzling exploits of the narcissistic fop upstairs. But roles are reversed when Success swivels her capricious head.
