"Patrick Norval, a widower who commutes to a humdrum job in the city, has been content to jog along in his pleasant unambitious life until suddenly his only son hits the pop-music jackpot.  Catapulted into the world of lush living, instant sex, drugs and ruthless greed, the boy is relieved to employ his father as his manager.  But for Patrick it proves a difficult assignment.  the tension between the generations, between people who accept morals and manners as a necessary part of life and people who don't, highlights a problem that in one form or another must touch nearly all fathers and sons."
