A competing chicken fighter asks George for permission to make an offer to buy him (and his wife and sons) and train and fight his chickens, while earning a share of the prize money. In return, he would give George his freedom in five years. Mr. Moore turns down the offer and George realizes that Moore will not let him leave for any amount of money under any circumstance. Kizzy is forced to tell George that Moore is his father. Moore threatens to sell one of the family members if George won't fight his chickens any more. A misplaced bet takes George to England.
