As honest, human, and aggressive story of young marriage in the making -- and the of the young couple in finding a life of their own, built on their own free of parental influence or compromise.

Mare, an editor, loses his job in the depression just when becomes pregnant. His family who help much, -- who do nothing, fear, pride, poverty, all strain their relationship. But at the , with Mare will on his fact as a literary agent, they both realize they with their too demanding, too enveloping families before they determine their own lives. Women largely, rentals, some sales.
