Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Looking Up is an independently produced domestic drama filmed in New York and drawing its cast from the soap-opera pool. Marilyn Chris plays the daughter of a Jewish seltzer-stand operator. She hopes to pump money into her dad's business by running her own "Burger Crown" franchise. Complications include the fact that Marilyn's husband (Dick Shawn) has fathered her sister's child, and that Marilyn is saddled with caring for her contentious grandchildren while her daughter tries to wean herself away from a pill-popping habit.
