Cantankerous Norman and his appeasing wife Ethel spend summers on Golden Pond. Although Norman has a tense relationship with daughter Chelsea, they agree to care for Billy, the son of her new fiancée, while the couple travels to Europe. A surprising relationship blossoms between the two encouraging Chelsea to attempt to repair her long-strained relationship with Norman before it’s too late.
