Mrs. Wiggs and her five children are falling behind on their mortgage and unable to get employment. They find themselves in danger of losing their shack in the cabbage patch.

The Wiggs family is so deep in debt that they must sell the beautiful Christmas dinner that is donated to them by the local church.  Mrs. Wiggs’s son Jimmy, the only person in the family who seems to be able to bring in some money, grows sicker and sicker until he passes away. Mrs. Wiggs turns to Lucy, the woman who brought them the Christmas dinner, for help.

Time passes, and the family’s hardships continue with various adventures and Lucy’s helpful nature intermixed.
