After Kate's death, husband Sam (De Young) struggles without success to bring up his stepdaughter Jill; they decamp to a dilapidated houseboat somewhere in the Canadian West; the boat breaks its moorings and Sam contracts pneumonia swimming ashore; girlfriend Nora (Foster), a free spirit, repeatedly turns down Sam's offers of marriage; at the close, Jill tells her dad she doesn't need a new mother - like him, she's sustained by the memory of Kate. A mawkish compilation of flashbacks to Part I and clips from the TV soap which sprang from it: Jill will doubtless grow into an '80s high-achiever, while the witless Sam will probably continue to strum his guitar into old age and beyond.
