A young widow with two small sons feels very fortunate that her widowed father was there to help her care for the boys and make adjustments since her husband's death. But now, a bit smothered by his caregiving, she feels she is ready to go on, but is concerned about how to get him to step back a pace. A friend suggests a fine older widow in church, who might divert his attention. The older widow has a son who appears rather distant and seemingly self-absorbed. But through scheming and friendly manipulation, they get the two "oldsters" together, but the results are hardly what they anticipated!
