Are Walters uncles really ex-bank robbers? Hes about to spend a summer with them and find out!

Poor Walter! His mom, Mae, an irresponsible beauty past her prime and down on her luck, has dumped him off with his two eccentric old uncles, Hub and Garth. Maes convinced that the old men have millions stashed away from bank robberiesand shes determined that she and Walter deserve a piece of the pie. So while Maes off trying to find a husband, Walter tries to make himself at home in the company of these older, grumpier menand some other relatives that are equally determined to get their share of the family assets.

Soon Walter is transfixed and transformed by the stories Garth tells of his and Hubs dashing younger years: how they were in the French Foreign Legion and how Hub won the love of the Sultans daughter and evaded the jealous Sheiks assassins. Are Hub and Garth sitting on a fortune, or is that a story too? And whos going to get it if they are?
