    Richard Pryor takes on three roles in this comic farce about a man whose life turns into a game of pinball when he's fired from his job. When he inadvertently joins a union, orange picker Leroy Jones (Pryor) is sacked by his employers. Setting out for Los Angeles to find work, Leroy has to leave wife Annie May (Margaret Avery) and family behind, along with over-sexed father, Rufus (also played by Pryor).

    While in LA, Leroy falls for union worker Vanetta (Lonette McKie), and is given his job back when his former employers realise he's a soft touch. However, his new managerial position doesn't go down well with his former friends, and he soon finds himself alienated, all the while trying to spread himself between Annie May and Vanetta. Finally, just when he thinks life's getting a little complicated, he discovers his wife is pregnant by the Reverend Lennox Thomas (Pryor again), and bent on revenge, sets about seducing the Preacher's wife.
