Here are two teachers - Hamilton Cade and Carter - the first one a trained teacher and the other one, an ex-US Air force officer who is employed as a handy-man at present. The plot moves around a boy, Freddie, of thirteen years, slow learner, whom the two men try to teach. Following his professional skills and experience, Hamilton Cade manages to teach Freddie alphabets and small words but fails to make learning interesting for this 'exceptional child' while Carter takes Freddie to a practical and joyous world. A very prominent question is this - why do we all think that the handy-man, Mr. Carter, turns out to be the real teacher!
- Freddie Putnam - A boy of 13, ruined by his father’s slightly abnormal in behavior, is able to respond to changes, not good at formal education,
- Nile Putnam – A very busy architect. He is a widower and in possession of a son whom he calls 'retarded.'
- Hamilton Cade - A teacher, a habitual drunkard, very much confident and self important, temparament.
- Carter - The handy man. He is not a trained teacher but he understands a student. He believes in an informal teaching style.
- Mr. Nile Putnam advertises for a hardworking resident teacher to be his son's personal trainer and teacher. Mr. Putnam's son Freddie is a little different from other children - behavioral abnormality.
- A few teachers respond to this advertisement but Mr. Putnam finds none fit for his son. Then one day another teacher drives in to Mr. Putnam's estate. His name is Hamilton Cade.
- Though Cade was a little unfit for a school teacher and was one who could work in a school for very short due to his temperament, Mr. Putnam feels like he had finally found the right teacher for his son and appoints Cade as Freddie’s teacher.
- Mr. Putnam wishes if Cade could teach Freddie how to write his name or just “cat” or to do a little calculation. Cade takes it as a challenge and offers his service to teach Freddie a lot more than Mr. Putnam had expected.
- Mr. Putnam doesn’t want Freddie go to a school or go out of his three acre estate. He believes that Freddie could not mix with the world outside since the time his mother died and that the world would not pity him or his father. Mr. Putnam, like the worst parent, declares in Freddie’s presence that ‘he can’t write, nor read…’
- Mr. Putnam leaves Freddie to Cade’s care and leaves for his business trip abroad. You may note that Mr. Putnam had never or seldom taken his son with him on a trip. He remains busy to make as much money to keep his son in a world of his own but he doesn’t realize that his son, bereft of his mother, needs none but his father.
- Well, on Mr. Putnam’s exit, Charles Carter, the handy man arrives in his work clothes. He is a middle-aged, black, vibrant man. When he drove his station wagon in, a tyre blows out. Carter gets out of the wagon and starts repairing the deflated tyre with a jack and other tools and Freddie approaches the scene. Carter allows him to repair the tyre and Freddie most readily joins him. He instantly feels like having Carter home.
- Hamilton Cade enters the kitchen and sees Carter and Freddie together. Cade makes it very clear that Carter is just a cook and he is not supposed to teach Freddie any more, anything.
