A dry cleaner from Ohio 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.

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
