A dry cleaner from Ohio, Ben Chambers, arrives in New York to visit his adult son Norman after his wife runs off with his own brother. Instead of the
solace he is expecting, he finds more turmoil when he discovers his son is living with Garson, a male partner. The irascible and stubborn father struggles comically with his denial of Norman’s orientation and his begrudging respect for Garson, even seeking out a lady of the night to set Norman straight. In the end, this loving father comes face to face with his affection for his son and his wife, who shows up repentant in New York. Love and hilarity triumph.
