Timmy Cleary, a son who went to war as a boy comes back as a man of his own, and the varying effects on his mother and father are devastating. They have grown irrevocably apart, and can no longer reconcile the dream and the reality. A polka with his mother, Nettie throws both into fits of laughter; but then, this isn't the boy she remembers at all. His father John, gives up a lucrative business appointment to take him to a ball game but the next morning the rancor of husband and wife turns sour...

Produced by special arrangement with Samuel French.
