After arguing with his daughter then getting thoroughly embarrassed at an electronics store, Louie gets a visit from his uncle Excelsior who orders Louie to see his father, whom Louie hasn’t spoken to in two years.
As a result of the meal, Louie becomes sick, developing a rash on his neck and vomiting. His doctor believes his physical condition is a result of his emotional repression brought on by his non-existent relationship with his father, so he urges Louie to pay him a visit as well.
Soon, it seems everyone is ordering around Louie, calling him names and belittling him for not being a man and resolving whatever unsettled business he has with his father. Just when, Louie is about to come face to face with his father, he takes off down the street and doesn’t stop until he’s out in the middle of the ocean on a stolen speed boat laughing at his tragically comedic situation.
