The usually loquacious Michael Evans (Ralph Carter) becomes hopelessly tongue-tied whenever he's in the vicinity of the beautiful and wealthy Yvonne (Ta-Ronce Allen). Alas, by the time Michael works up the courage to tell Yvonne how much he cares for her, the girl has evinced a preference for Michael's older brother J.J. (Jimmie Walker). The result of all this romantic intrigue is a bitter sibling rivalry, culminating in a near-fistfight.
