A funny look at the fads and foibles of the fabulous 1920s. Dexter and Jessie Denning and their three children are the average American family. Jessie's become expert in calming down her unruly spouse on the many occasions when Dexter loses his temper. Then Jessie's ne'er do well brother, Jay Desmond, shows up at their house announcing he's weary of roaming. Dexter hits the ceiling. A month later, Jay's still there when a local bank informs Jessie some unknown person has opened an account in her name and deposited ten thousand dollars! Jessie's unknown benefactor isn't revealed until the final curtain and everyone will enjoy playing in this journey back into nostalgia.
