Mary Horton, a lonely middle-aged American career woman, hires a handsome, mildly mentally handicapped young handyman named Tim. At first keeping her distance, Mary is drawn closer to Tim as the days pass. When Tim's mother dies, Mary becomes his surrogate mother, a relationship that deepens into romantic love. Tim's older sister Dawn resents Mary's "intrusion" into their lives, but Tim's dad Ron blesses the relationship, realizing that it is beneficial to both parties.

Not a convincing performance from Mel Gibson as a mentally handicapped young man. That may have been because director Pate wanted a sweet , feel good film.
