Stan and Ollie inherit an island and a yacht to get them there. What better idea than to fill the boat with the usual collection of characters--from a stateless refugee to a pretty girl running away from her husband-to-be, and set off to a new life on Utopia. Life, however, is not so simple. No sooner does the new nation get started when uranium is discovered and the peaceful kingdom begins to crumble
