Blake wants out of the family black market business.
But he can't decide how to leave and still maintain the lifestyle he's accustomed to. His father gives him an ultimatum, leave home immediately, and if he wants to win his inheritance, marry within the next five years or lose it all.
Blake accepts and strikes out for the open road. Only one man's name is given as a clue to earning an income. When Blake finds his benefactor, the proposition is far from what he dreamed of. The next few years bring on challenges and angst, but when he meets the love of his life, his character and creativity are put to the ultimate test.
He thinks he's found Miss Right, but stiff competition and an unusual project jeopardize it all. Blake pulls out all the stops, taking bold steps that would leave many speechless. Will he win or return home to his father, defeated?
Inspired by the Danish fable, "The Princess's Birthmarks," The Golden Mark presents a modern, snappy retelling of how a humble man's precarious beginnings push him to the limits when realizing his dreams.
