Franklin is a college professor, and is in the process of being promoted to "Dean of Humanities" at "Chapel Hill University" in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.
The two of them must peacefully co-exist when Willie arrives at Franklin's house (un-announced) to fulfill the conditions of his probation; he must live at his son's house, under house arrest. Caught in the middle of the family feuding are Franklin's wife Barbara (Alex Datcher), a local news anchor and their teenage daughter Bianca (Bianca Lawson).
