Two families with one parent are brought together by Duffy (Eric Roberts), a cat who can talk. Phil Barber, (Johnny Whitaker), a wealthy man, recently sold his computer company to spend more time with his son Chris (Justin Cone), a model, who does not care about this decision. At the same time, Susan (Kristine DeBell) is finding it hard to make enough money as a caterer with her two children Tina (Janis Peebles) and Trent (Daniel Dannas). Duffy then enters the families' lives, talking to them to give them advice, but can only talk to each person once.
