In the city of Manchester, the eldest daughter of a shopkeeper decides that her best avenue to independence is to marry the young boot maker who works in the shop's basement. Based on Harold Brighouse's 1915 play, this tempest in a teacup revolves around the conflict between an unyielding family patriarch played by Charles Laughton and his eldest daughter determined to free herself from his tyrannical whims. The inflexible patriarch lords it over his three daughters by day and stumbles intoxicated through the streets of Manchester at night. By the end of the film the oldest daughter has become the successful manager of the family business and the insufferable father is reduced to an alcoholic invalid.
