In this convoluted trifle written by the world's worst movie director, Ed Wood, a family of hillbillies find their lives aboard a foundered riverboat (where they have been living for over 30 years) disrupted by a fugitive carnival worker who wants to hide out from the law. While there, she falls in love with the son, but unfortunately, she is really in love with a man who pretends to be a minister. The son, also loves another--a moonshiner's daughter. Unfortunately, the riverboat people and the 'shiners have been feuding for years. Mayhem ensues, but in the end, all the couples are with their rightful loves and happiness ensues.
