A spunky spinster helps rescue a boy, his pigs, and his family from corrupt officials and thieves.
Grace Gary, a young widow, struggles to rear her three children and keep her job. Due to her dirty-dealing boss, she's given 90 days to pay off her mortgage or lose her house. If her son's (Paul's) pigs win the local and then the state fair, they'll make enough money to save their home. But the pigs keep escaping, eating the neighbor's chickens and galloping to Mimi Witherspoon's farm at the edge of town. Police tell Grace to get rid of them. Mimi, known for her Good Works, comes to the rescue, offering to let Paul keep the pigs at her farm. Her nephew, Tim, helps Paul move the pigs and falls in love with Grace. Then the pigs are pignapped. Tim and Paul find the pigs and catch the thieves.
