Episode Recap

For most of his young life, Dexter Green has been molded by the dreams and ambitions of two people: his mother, who wanted him to achieve financial success; and his father, who wanted his son to be content with a peaceful way of life. Now he is a young man financially and personally successful and a member of the town's society. Dexter has just announced his engagement to Irene Hedrich, a good, sensible girl. Then the sudden reappearance of Judy Holt brings all his plans to a halt. Judy is the rich girl he has dreamed of and loved for years, even hoped to marry, but who thought of him as only one of her many admirers. Now her declaration of love starts him remembering the past years and his own dreams.
