Jack Butler lives with his wife, Caroline, and their children Alex, Kenny, and Megan, in a Detroit suburb. During the Early 1980s recession, Jack and his friends Larry and Stan lose their engineering jobs at the Ford Motor Company. Caroline, having been a housewife for years, uses her college education and experience working in advertising to re-enter the workforce, leaving Jack to deal with the new and bewildering responsibilities of a stay-at-home dad. Jack discovers childcare and house maintenance involve a complex juggling act, and his initial struggles in daily errands gain the attention and company of other neighborhood housewives. Eventually, he hits his stride and although somewhat distracted by the flirtatious Joan (a neighbor and friend of Caroline’s), he begins to feel confined by suburban domestic life. Simultaneously, he feels threatened by Caroline’s responsibilities and work-life as a fast-climbing ad executive.

Meanwhile, Caroline contends with challenges in the workforce: her maternal and housekeeping instincts jeopardize her position as a sophisticated executive, and her boss is intent on having his way with her. During a pitch to a hard-to-please client, Caroline’s insight as a budget-conscious housewife proves invaluable. The client’s president wants her to fly to Los Angeles to help shoot a commercial. In the meantime, Jack’s former employer invites him to interview for his old job, but his former boss, Jinx Latham, betrayed his reputation.
