An actor tries to escape a controversial production of The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by running away from school. But his escape is complicated when the actor who plays Jim decides to run away as well. They are joined by a pair of troublemakers (Duke & King) who lead their ragtag fugitive theatre company into a series of ridiculous misadventures, while the domineering Aunt Polly tries to force them all back into the real play.
