Film: In the Family
Six year old, Chip Hines lost his mother at birth, but his father, Cody, began dating again not long after. To the surprise of everyone in his traditional Southern family, including Cody himself, his new partner was a man, a man of Asian heritage, no less, named Joey Williams. Joey is a contractor by trade and Tennessean by birth. He dresses down in duck jackets and denim and drives a red pickup truck. When he ambles over to introduce himself, with his easy smile and slightly down-home drawl, his voice sings with a kind of plainspoken poetry. Joey Williams is his full and legal name, not short for anything, and it's a pretty good handle for such a straightforward and uncomplicated guy.
