Sympathetic look loosely based on the relationship between tobacco heiress, Doris Duke and her shy butler, Bernard Lafferty. The icy and mercurial Duke fires her butler for serving a chilled cantaloupe; the agency sends Lafferty, formerly household staff to Liz Taylor and to Peggy Lee. He's an alcoholic, fresh out of rehab. With a wine cellar to die for, Bernard falls off the wagon. Can he pull himself together when Doris needs him?
