Jamie doesn't live a normal life, he's raised by his single mom and lives in a house occupied by tenants. It's the start of the summer of 1979 in Santa Barbara and Dorothea Fields is not only the matriarch of her little family but she also looks over the young people that seem to join her household.
At that moment in time the world was experiencing much turmoil and uncertainty as well as huge gains in personal freedom and all these things convinced Dorothea to ask other women involved in Jamie's life to help mould and shape him into a well-adjusted person. Mother's and Son's often have tumultuous relationships and Jamie loves his mom but can't help but constantly think that she's a know it all with all the answers.
