The orderly existence of the Crompton family almost falls apart when strict father Mason goes too far by demanding that his daughter, George, eat a piece of herring. Not wishing to be disobeyed, he serves the same herring everyday at tea time, waiting for George to change her mind. This

action nearly results in the suicide of Mason's wife (Coupland); after she sells his new jacket to obtain money for George to escape to London, Coupland is afraid to face Mason's wrath. This simple but effective look at the tensions within a family explores not only age differences but also

selfishness and closed-mindedness. Mason is wonderful as always, but the character he portrays is not always believable.
