Margret Becker (McClanahan) has a big surprise for her now adult children – she is getting re-married – and she also has a second big surprise – her new husband John (Duffy) is young enough to be her son. Although Margret has found new love in her life, the family is in a ruckus. Her children want to help their mother celebrate her new marriage, but instead find themselves wildly uncomfortable with their future step-father and, as the big day approaches, Margret learns that her first chance at a second start may be her children's last straw.
