In one extraordinary day in 1956, a family has their son lose his job and move back home, has their daughter leave her husband and move back home and the father Sam, thinking that he and his wife Hilda are empty nesters and can start to live their OWN lives, buys their first television set. A poignant and funny look at how family dynamics don’t really change much over the years.
