In this odd-ball comedy, a self-sacrificing but eccentric mother attempts to guide her equally eccentric family. She has two sons and a daughter. One son is a communist and the other is a struggling prizefighter. Her daughter is trying to snag a married booking agent to help her break into radio. In addition to watching over her children, the mother must also help her husband find a full-time job. Real trouble comes when her husband's brother dies of indigestion following a big Chinese dinner and leaves her with $500,000 provided that she leave her family. She decides to take the money and run. Fortunately, she eventually decides to come back home.
