Released after serving a prison sentence, Stanley Bowler sets about trying to 'better' himself. The basic premise of the series revolves around Bowler's attempts to develop (and to project to others) a more-cultured personality, as he tries (but fails) to understand the fine arts, and to move into higher social circles.
