Seven years ago, a senator and his social-climbing wife sent their son Morgan to boarding school and have routinely ignored him ever since. When the holidays arrive this year, Morgan once again gets the sad news that they are too busy to have him come home, but then change their minds and ask him to come home for good. Morgan is thrilled until he learns that his father's campaign manager suggested he improve his "family man" image to assure his re-election. Morgan goes home...intent on reforming his parents.
