The Story

Italy is a fairytale to wealthy playboy Philip Herriton, until he finds out that there's a dentist in fairyland - and that that dentist's son is about to become his new in-law.


A baby results, and sweeping melodrama and sardonic humor meet in Tuscany as Philip's ideals are challenged in the subsequent family battle over the fate of that unfortunate infant.
