Willona's ex-boyfriend returns to try to rekindle their romance. But she declines his marriage proposal because it would cause the family to constantly move. However, Penny feels like a burden on them and runs away.
Willona's former boyfriend calls her. He is back in town from Alaska and wants to marry Willona. She turns him down because she now has Penny to consider. When Penny finds out, she runs away because she thinks she is ruining Willona's life.
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.
