The wife (Jenny Sullivan) of Vietnam veteran Richard Gaines (James Whitmore Jr.) is delighted when Richard's 15-year-old Vietnamese daughter Nguyen (Denice Kumagai) comes to the United States to live with their family. Alas, Richard's spiteful son Brad (Billy Jayne) wants nothing to do with his "new" half sister, and before long his hostility has spread to everyone else in his sphere of influence. It is up to Jonathan (Michael Landon) to defuse Brad's anger and bitterness. Longtime fans of series star Michael Landon will enjoy the many "inside" jokes made at his expense in this episode.
