Steve Jackson (Sidney Poitier) and Wardell Franklin (Bill Cosby) are customers in a nightclub that is held up by thieves and the duo are robbed of their wallets and jewellery.
Meanwhile, Steve wins $50,000 in a lottery – but his winning ticket is in his stolen wallet!
Keeping everything secret from his wife (Rosalind Cash), Steve and his pal Wardell set out to find the criminals, enlisting the aid of a fumbling investigator, a politician and a preacher to track down the thieves.
