Frank Adler (Evans) is a single man raising his spirited young niece Mary (Grace) in a coastal town in Florida. But Mary is a brilliant child prodigy and Frank's intention that she lead a normal life are thwarted when the seven-year-old’s command of mathematics comes to the attention of his formidable mother Evelyn (Duncan)—a wealthy Bostonian whose plans for her granddaughter threaten to separate Mary and Frank. As family tensions and disconnections flare, uncle and niece find support in Roberta (Spencer), their protective landlady and best friend, and Mary’s teacher Bonnie (Slate), a young woman whose concern for her student soon develops into a relationship with her uncle as well.
