Plot: In this touching film directed by actor Jack Lemmon, an elderly widower refuses to let his son and daughter-in-law move him into a retirement home.

Wilma Kotcher tells her husband, Gerald, that his father is no longer welcome in their home. But the feisty dad, Joseph P. Kotcher, won't allow himself to be locked up with a bunch of other senior citizens. Instead, he decides to move in with a troubled teenage babysitter who has become pregnant.

Joseph finds new meaning in his life by lending the girl, Erica, a hand. At the same time, the teenager learns a lot about life from her new roommate.

But Erica must still make an important decision: should she keep the baby or not?

Meanwhile, Joseph's family starts having a change of heart about him.
