Norman Thayer, a retired professor, and Ethel have had a summer cottage on Golden Pond since early in their marriage. This summer their daughter Chelsea - whom they haven't seen for years - feels she must be there for Norman's 80th birthday. She and her boyfriend are on their way to Europe but will be back in a couple of weeks to pick up the boyfriend's son. When she returns Chelsea is married and her stepson has the relationship with her father that she always wanted. Will father and daughter be able to communicate at last?
