When Linda Marsh catches her husband George, the school principal, with their daughter's fifth grade teacher, she becomes unglued. George moves out and Linda spends her days in her robe and her nights watching television. Her children Drew and Mandy are also having a rough time, but 4-year-old Willie is hit the hardest. He puts on his Halloween rabbit suit and refuses to take it off. Linda's mother Dixie is determined that her daughter will get on with her life. With Dixie's cheery encouragement, Linda begins to move on just as George has misgivings.
