Aging patriarch Frank Giorgio tries to maintain his Brooklyn pride when the bank that holds the small business loan for his lobster farm forecloses. A hardworking man who listens to only oldies on the radio, Frank sees his worth as inextricably tied to his company. It is just this traditional attitude that has alienated his wife and grown-up children. Frank must temper his resistance to change and learn to express his love for his family in a more -- or less (?) -- conventional way if he is to find contentment.
