Ottis, a strapping young man in a small Southern town, is creating a “Gospel Poetry Opera”

He is eager to get away and produce the work in New York but has no money and few prospects

So he decides to hustle Gladys, a local preacher’s wife

At first, Gladys appears an easy mark for cash, but she has artistic aspirations of her own, and her demands on Ottis soon multiply

What Gladys doesn’t know, however, is that Ottis is also hustling her husband, Henry, a preacher

The hustles deepen, complications ensue, and events take a completely unexpected turn

Ottis, Gladys, and Henry all learn the hard way that sometimes deception gets you exactly what you want
