The story of the twilight years of tobacco billionaire Doris Duke and her relationship with her gay butler, to whom she left her entire fortune.

The icy and mercurial Duke fires her butler for serving a chilled cantaloupe.

The agency sends shy Bernard Lafferty, formerly household staff to Liz Taylor and to Peggy Lee.

He's an alcoholic, fresh out of rehab.

But gradually becomes Duke's gay alter ego as she romps through life sleeping with young men and making shrewd decisions quickly.

As Doris struggles to manage her fortune and orchids, Bernard manages her New Jersey estate.

With a wine cellar to die for, Bernard falls off the wagon. Can he pull himself together when Doris needs him?
