In this comedy, a Yiddish fellow cannot keep from kibitzing into other people's lives. Trouble ensues when he is mistakenly given a huge fortune in stocks that he can spend any way he pleases. At the same time, his daughter has fallen in love with an impoverished, but good hearted boy. When the kibitzer suggests he bet all his money on a dog of a racehorse, the lad does it. Against all odds, the horse wins, and suddenly the young man is quite wealthy. One day the stock bottoms out and the advice giver finds himself financially ruined. Fortunately, his brother comes to the rescue when he is asked in English whether or not he wants to sell the other's stock. The only English he knew was "Yes, sure, certainly."
