Plot Summary
Henry Fonda hosts and narrates this documentary profile of a Washington state family with 18 children. Boeing inspector Bill Dukes and wife Louise are shown in the week leading up to eldest daughter Bobbi's wedding. Though both love their large family, the small monthly budget and lack of privacy often leads to financial problems and personal tension. The other children are also profiled, from restless 18-year-old Mary to the youngest, 1-year-old baby Angela.
