They live together with her 12-year-old, Marlene--her daughter by the sexy but delinquent Jimmy, who flew the coop years ago and hasn't been heard from since. Dek loves Shirley, so much, that he proposes to her on national television. Jimmy sees the TV proposal and returns to town convinced that he can try to win back his wife and daughter, however he faces formidable opposition from almost every side.
