Father Ferris' successful packaging business earns his family a luxurious life on a country estate until an incurable disease kills him.
In complex scenes from several points in time, we observe his three kids forced to grow up fatherless, Jack explicitly being appointed to step into his father's shoes.
When his mother decides to marry Clive Lamis, Jack resists, but is too young, so finally moves out and proves himself a business talent worthy of his father.
At Jack's 21st birthday, his mother finally gets him to attend a party in his honour, before he leaves for China.
Yet things work out surprisingly, as family ties keep them bonded.
