Patrick Duffy and Linda Carter star in this highly emotional story of love, loss and rediscovered happiness. Oliver (Patrick Duffy) is a top advertising executive who seems to have it all a beautiful wife, three great children and a lovely home. But, one fateful day, his wife announces she's leaving home to become a mature student at a far-away university. Her promise to return on weekends is quickly broken and Oliver must take on the role of both father and mother to his increasingly confused and resentful children. Soon, the family is falling to pieces. The kids blame Oliver for the eventual divorce and the eldest son Benjamin drops out of high school to set up home with his newly pregnant girlfriend. The painful death of his own mother is the final straw and a despairing Oliver agrees to take a new job in Los Angeles, hopefully leaving his heartbreak behind. There he meets and falls in love with a beautiful actress (Lynda Carter), but will his children ever allow Oliver to rebuild the romance and happiness he yearns for?
