This modern day version of the prodigal son, tells the story of a single father and the two sons he is raising following the death of his wife some 10 years ago. The eldest son, Doug, is helping the father, Mr. Fuller, in the family business; while the younger son, Steve – who is supposed to be attending college to get his degree, has opted to become rebellious and live life to the fullest. With this agenda, he heads to New York; leaving behind everyone who loves him: his immediate family, and his long time girlfriend, Lisa, who loves him dearly and wants him to marry her one day. Now the story takes a twist as he pursues the good life.
