Plot Summary
Penny Addams (June Allyson) lives in a constant state of depression stemming from the trauma of her father's death when she was just a young girl. Her brother, Chase (Robert Sterling), and stepmother, Lee (Claudette Colbert), work to help Penny process her grief through psychotherapy and revisiting their past, but only the revelation of long-buried family secrets -- including her mother's secret lover and the true nature of her father's death -- can bring Penny out of her intense despair.
