Moore plays Chris, the son of Suchet’s Joe Keller, a man embroiled in a scandal over defective fighter plane engines. Chris’s mother (Wanamaker) can’t accept the death of her other son, a pilot thought to have been killed in World War II, nor can she accept that her dead son’s fiancée (Rooper) has transferred her affections to Chris.
