When money problems close Claremont School in Philadelphia, Director Vivian Perry (Cicely Tyson) decides to save eight emotionally distrubed children from the worst ghetto school in the country by taking them to her parents' farm in Oregon. In desperate need of a driver/mechanic for the school's bus, Perry teams up with Joe Braxton (Richard Pryor), an equally desperate ex-con who hates women and children. The action is fast and funny as this delightfully mis-matched group battles the bus, the law, the Ku Klux Klan, and each other on their way West. But it ends happily for the kids, the con, and the straight-laced lady.
