Overview

Ottis, a strapping young man in a small Southern town, is creating a "Gospel Poetry Opera." He is dying to go away and produce the work in New York but has no money and few prospects�until he decides to hustle Gladys, a local preacher�s wife. At first, Gladys appears an easy mark for cash, but she has artistic aspirations of her own, and her demands on Ottis soon multiply. What Gladys doesn�t know, however, is that Ottis is also hustling her husband, Henry, a preacher. The hustles deepen, complications ensue, and events take a completely unexpected turn. Ottis, Gladys, and Henry learn the hard way, that sometimes, deception gets you exactly what you want.
