Bennie is the son of the owner of a carnival. Many people in town look down on Bennie because of his father's profession. When Andrew breaks his arm and Bennie takes his place on the basketball team, Andrew really begins to dislike Bennie.

Andrew decides to get proof of the truth. Andrew borrows a camera from the newspaper publisher and sits in wait for the real owner of the still. When the man appears, Andrew discovers that his initial instinct was correct. The real bootlegger is the town sheriff.
