When their flirty mother marries an American pilot and moves to Kansas Baddi visits her and returns to Devils Island as an Elvis look alike with a new American accent and a big car. He becomes a local hero, but his stardom soon fades, his mother divorces and this quirky family sets out on another adventure.
