Businessman Harry Boyle owns a restaurant supply company and has a son, 22 year-old college dropout Chet, and a daughter Alice, a rather robust 16-year-old who teams up with her mother to display the independence of women in the 70’s. Chet is a hippie who spends most of his time sleeping and Alice is sexually liberated. Harry’s youngest son is Jamie, the Capitalist of the family, even though he is only 9.
