A wandering hillbilly-type 'family' adopted by Pop Kwimper run out of money and gas. They set up their mobile home on a Florida beach right next to a highway that is shortly to be dedicated by the State Governor. Existing only on government subsidies and his army disability pension Toby, played by Elvis, has to find a way to make enough money to get them on the move again. The solution is provided by 19 year old Holly, who looks after the identical twins Eddy and Teddy, when she persuades big businessmen looking for game fishing that the area is full of giant Tarpon and they make a tidy sum supplying bait, tackle and food.

Alicia: "Did anyone ever tell you that you are very handsome?" Toby ( Elvis ): "Only girls…"
