A teenage loner who happens to be a gifted athlete must cope with personal shame and the angry accusations of his parents, especially his demanding mother, over his chronic bed-wetting, although his shame ironically results in his eventually becoming an Olympic gold-medalist runner. Michael Landon based this story on his own teenage experiences. Photographer Ted Voigtlander and editor John Loeffler each received an Emmy nomination.
