Fine Things is the richly emotional story of successful young executive Bernie Fine's heart-rending search for love. Devoted to his work but emotionally unfulfilled, Bernie (Moffett) realises his ultimate dream when he meets and marries the beautiful divorcee Liz O'Reilly (Pollan). Their life together with her young daughter is filled with joy, but Liza is fatally stricken with cancer soon after the birth of their son. Heartbroken, Bernie and eighty-year-old Jane struggle to keep their new-found family intact. Suddenly out of the past comes Jane's natural father, Liz's former husband ex-convict Chandler Scott (Darrell Larson). He demands money in exchange for giving up custody of Jane. Awarded temporary visiting rights by the court, he kidnaps her and flees to Mexico. Bernie, terrified and alone, searches him out and brings the traumatised girl home, where he must try to rediscover the Fine Things in his life.
