Danny (Michael J. Fox) is a professional bowler and currently somewhat down on his luck. He has recently learned that early onset arthritis may be about to kill his career. He is thus understandably concerned for his future when he is tracked down by his estranged relatives who are trying to divide up the estate of a wealthy uncle even though he is still very much alive. Uncle Joe (Kirk Douglas) is the rich, grumpy old man in question. He is wheelchair bound, owns his own company and does not get along well with most of his relatives. Everyone accuses him of being greedy, but there seems to be no limit to the depths to which they will sink in search of inheriting his vast wealth. Danny is at first above their ugly manipulations and maneuvering, but, as time goes on, he finds himself tempted and his character tested. In the end, he and Uncle Joe both see his true colors.
