Mame is no average aunt, as wealthy orphan nephew Patrick learns when he arrives in the middle of a riotous cocktail party of the 1920s.  Mame loves life and loves causes:  whether she’s fighting an outdated (in her view) educational system or squashing racial prejudice and pretensions in the suburbs.  Patrick has a very eclectic education, which extends into his adulthood as Mame lovingly interferes in his first romances with hilarious results.
