Everything changes when Danny falls in love with Theresa, the diffident daughter of the man who owns the local funeral parlor. They develop a sweet, tender relationship, while Rose looks on in disapproval, making tactless remarks about Theresa's Italian heritage and small breasts. If Danny doesn't stand up to his mother and rearrange his commitments in life, he will be in danger of losing Theresa forever.
