Mike's future as a professional actor seems bleak, to say the least: His dad Jason (Alan Thicke) having cut off all financial support, Mike (Kirk Cameron) has absolutely no money--and now, no place to live. Sister Carol (Tracey Gold) is also on the "outs" with her parents, though in a somewhat more secure position than Mike as a student at Columbia University. Meanwhile, mom Maggie (Joanna Kerns), worried that she has lost Mike for good, is not above tightening the apron strings on Carol. Singer Jerry Vale appears as as himself.
