Life has lost its savor for the middle-aged widower in this drama. He keeps on at his job, but his grown children are a puzzle to him. One of his sons treats him with surly indifference when he sees him, which isn't often. The other son, it is increasingly clear, is a homosexual. However, when he begins an affair with a new employee in his office, a girl young enough to be his daughter, he experiences a brief sunny interlude.
