Once-spry retiree Ted Long (Fred Astaire) suffers a debilitating heart attack that leaves him incapable of caring for himself. Unable to rely on his wife, Emma (Helen Hayes), herself suffering from deteriorating health, Ted grows increasingly dependent on his adult children for his basic needs. Familial bonds are tested when Ted and Emma decide to move in with their son, Mike (Efrem Zimbalist Jr.), rather than face the prospect of living in a retirement home.
