An anthropologist receives a grant to study primitive cultures in New Guinea, but the tragic death of his wife forces him to use the grant money to take care of his family instead. The only problem: His misuse of funds is certain to land him in hot water. So the anthropologists decides to create a fake film by creating a made-up tribe of primitive people using his own children as cleverly disguised actors. High comedy and goofy antics result. Things get even more complicated when the film gains popularity on TV and the anthropologist is forced to keep creating more footage.
