Thirteen-year-old Ben Affleck heads the cast of this semi-comic ABC Afterschool Special. Affleck plays Danny Coleman, the teenaged son of New York divorcée Ellie Coleman (Madeline Kahn). Sensing his mother's loneliness, Danny conspires with his girlfriend, Melanie (Pam Potillo), to secretly advertise for a "perfect guy" (and, hopefully, future stepfather) in the newspaper. Though Danny imagines that it is he who will conduct the screening process, it is Ellie who must ultimately make the final choice -- and the results are surprising.
