Plot summary

Retired Papa Strauss, a widower, who has been a successful dye manufacturer, is being shifted around from one married-son's home to the other, and is not welcome at all because his daughters-in-law object to his smelly pipe smoking. Finally the family tucks him 'out of sight and out of mind' into a nursing home, with very little 'honor thy father' thought given to it. However, unmarried daughter, Lena, who loves her father dearly, with help from an inheritance from her uncle, and her chemist fiancée, who has new patented technology, sets up a new dye works with her father as head. They make a home for him. New company steals business from sons' company and finally has to bail them out. Sons and their wives attitudes finally change.
