Burgess Meredith starred as the genial, easy going father of a family in Wilmington who is a very progressive though quiet thinker. Mr. Pennypacker has a branch office in Philadelphia and spends half of his there. He has established a second family in Philadelphia, never dreaming the twain should meet. But they do. The minister, whose son is to marry Pennypacker's daughter, is speechless. His wife hysterically refuses to believe it. His children are merely curious about his other children. But he is finally ostracized and has to be voted back in by family council. He comes back somewhat chastened and with a delectable solution to his two family system.
