He tries to forget his troubles and regain happiness by returning to the good old days of his youth. He rents a house in his old neighbourhood and brings Harvey, his aged and half-paralyzed father with him. Their landlady is Jackie (Julie St-Pierre), a young and attractive woman who wants to be a singer. Romance blossoms between Mel and Jackie.
