The cost of medical treatment is enough to prevent Florida from seeing a doctor. But James insists that she seek medical attention and after discovering she needs surgery, he'll do whatever it takes to pay for it.
Florida is in the hospital for a gall bladder operation, but the real pain is finding out how much everything costs.
Suffering from a severe pain in her side, Florida (Esther Rolle) hides her condition from her financially strapped husband. When it is revealed that Florida needs a gallbladder operation, James (John Amos) vows to get her the best hospital care possible, and money is no object. But that is before James is told just how much money will be needed.
