The ten- year-old Donna has to choose, after the death of her very wealthy father, a new one among her dad’s five brothers. Her driver and ally Willard chaffeurs Donna to the eccentric uncles whose similarity in looks is striking. But suddenly a sixth candidate, the presumed dead gangster Bugs, emerges and brings with the kidnapping of his niece fierce excitement to the group. Donna, however, has already decided, and with a final coup in the end they trick even the lawyers.
