    In this comedy, the siblings in the Cartney household in Dublin are having a hard time maturing and adapting to modern life. Their emptyheaded mother and ever-absent father are of no use.

Two suitors for the daughters of the household are distrustful of Sammy but their anti-semitism is challenged and discouraged.
