Todhunter Hall is awakened from his peaceful nap by his former actress wife. Vicky reminds him it’s actually the day after D-day, and points out an unusual notation on his calendar. Does the day indicate some other holiday, or appointment that needs attention? The burning question plagues Doc Hall as he keeps his appointments with faculty, and a concerned father of a student.
In a rush, it all comes back about what the calendar date meant, and the gravity of the situation behind Mr Weatherbee and his son comes crashing home. As the serious topic draws near, we find some comic relief in the D-day scenario, which takes place in the garden. Being the wise and scholarly academic administrator, Doc Hall discovers a way to solve young Weatherbee’s trouble at school, and with his dad. Sometimes a paerent needs to let go, and let their kids make their own choices to excel or fail. With the solution being that when you’re working at your passion, the vocation doesn’t matter.
Will dad let go? If the younger Weatherbee tries understanding dad’s motivation, it might bring his son around as well. Doc Hall puts a little twist on the truth and a decision between pursuing a career in Agriculture and law is made.
