Set in the 1950s, this thoughtful made-for-TV movie is about a sailor, Pete Devlin (Gary Frank) who returns to his old neighborhood for Christmas and wants to hook-up with Kathleen. But, he must deal with a not-so-perfect world. Glenn Ford gives a fine performance as the hard-drinking father Billy, and Julie Harris plays the role of Pete's mother Anne.
