Opal Kronkie, a middle-aged recluse, lives in a tumbledown mansion at the edge of the municipal dump. The general disarray of her establishment is aggravated by the fact that Opal collects things – anything that can be toted home in her little red wagon. Into her rather strange world comes Gloria, Bradford, and Solomon, three purveyors of bogus perfume on the lam from the authorities. Opal’s home is the perfect hideout – and Opal, herself, might be the remedy for their shattered finances. They decide that what she needs is plenty of insurance, a rapid demise, and three beneficiaries… named Gloria, Bradford, and Solomon. The unsavory trio repeatedly concoct elaborate schemes but are thwarted again and again. Through it all, Opal radiates kindness, affection and, strangely enough, gratitude. But the real clincher comes at the end as the trio finds the importance of friendship and that, sometimes, all you have to do is ask.
