After being fired from his position for acting on a fantasy by trying on ladies underwear in the teachers lounge, Louis moves into Manhattan with Henry Harrison (Kevin Kline, an aristocratic playwright, who is eccentric to say the least, in his cramped and dingy one bedroom apartment.

Harrison decides to raise him from his depths by teaching him how to be aristocracy; specifically, sneaking into the opera at half-time, urinating in public without being noticed, and providing, ahem, “companionship” to the elderly, wealthy women of Manhattan’s upper-crust. Along the way, they must face the fact that their quirks simply serve to help them deny their faults and flaws, but find the support in each other to draw themselves out and enrich their lives.
