Synopsis

Three generations of the Robert Mitchum family united for this project, initially called "Fathering," with the veteran actor playing a dying rancher who decides to visit the family he had deserted thirty years earlier. His son Christopher, and Christopher's son, Bentley (in his acting debut), play his fictional son and grandson, the older one contemptuous toward the man who had abandoned him as a boy, the younger one (the show's narrator) thrilled by his belated return. Filmed primarily in Malibu and Santa Barbara, near Robert Mitchum's real-life stomping grounds.
