Plot summaryEdit

Willona's former boyfriend Frank (Adam Wade), a globetrotting contractor, comes back into her life with a marriage proposal. Though flattered, Willona (Ja'net DuBois) turns Frank down, worried that his constant moving about would disrupt the carefully cultivated stability of Willona's adopted daughter, Penny (Janet Jackson). Upon learning of this, Penny becomes convinced that she is ruining Willona's life -- and runs away from home.
