While their parents are away, eight-year old Miles, six-year old Maizy and their teen-aged sister, Tia are left in the care of their uncle Buck.

Buck hits it off with Miles and Maizy, but Tia is suspicious, and the two engage in a battle of wills.

Over the next several days, Buck deals with a number of situations, including Tia’s horny boyfriend, a drunk clown, and talking to the school principal about Maizy.

Surprisingly, the very inept Uncle Buck entertains the younger children who come to love him and earns the respect of Tia when he rescues her from her worthless boyfriend.
