Fall Play - The Simple Truth

This poses problems at work, in his father-in-law’s grocery store, where Emmett is obliged to admit to customers that the bread is stale and the oranges and grapefruit could be juicier. But the real problems come up later at dinner with his family, when Emmett confesses to his new bride, Nancy, that he hates her kidney stew and always has. Nancy goes off in tears of confusion, as she had assumed that this was one of his favorites. Emmet’s truthfulness soon becomes contagious and infects the whole family, which threatens to tear the household apart. It’s Emmett’s father-in-law, though, whose ultimate truth about his daughter’s pregnancy, turns out to bring them all back together.
