An American POW (Richard Pryor) held for six years in a Viet Cong prison camp looks forward to returning home to a hero's welcome. But once he’s finally shipped back, everything goes wrong for him: his mother is in an expensive nursing home; he has a new daughter; plus, his wife has a lover – and they’ve lost all of his savings. And so begins his desperate – and funny – descent into a world of crime.
