Todd Dobson, computer honcho from New York City, is in the small town of Willowdale to install a computer system in Hiram Paige's library. He falls head over heels in love with the library assistant. Todd proposes right then and there and, to her own surprise, Harriet invites him home to face her family. Confronted with Harriet's almost engaged to boyfriend Mitch, sister Judith Ann's casseroles, grandmother Hortense who has her eye on Hiram, and a mother who never smiles, Todd realizes this isn't going to be easy. This lighthearted comedy about love in the computer age reminds us that laughter makes love sweet, that there are still large pleasure in small town life, and that a loving family can still make the most important word in the world "home."
