A young boy wanders into an old-folks home and expresses interest in the old-time minstrel shows. The home's residents, former minstrel men, begin reminiscing, via flashbacks, and the film cuts to a riverboat, and an old-fashioned black-face minstrel show with songs, dances, vaudeville skits and lots of banjo strumming.
