Henry Fonda masterfully plays Norman Thayer, a prickly retired professor who visits his summer home with his loving wife, Ethel (Katharine Hepburn). Soon after they are joined by their daughter, Chelsea (Jane Fonda, in her only on-screen teaming with her father), her fiance Bill (Dabney Coleman), and his son Billy (Doug McKeon). The cantankerous Norman develops an unlikely bond with young Billy, providing the framework for an emotional summer in which the Thayers' strained familial relationships are finally allowed to heal and take wing.
