In this musical adaptation, mischievous Southern youth Huckleberry Finn (Jeff East) finds himself kidnapped by his own long-absent father (Gary Merrill), who hopes to cash in on a ransom. To elude his father's malevolent grasp, Finn fakes his own death and heads downriver on a makeshift raft with his best friend, escaped slave Jim (Paul Winfield).
