In the streets of St. Louis, vagabond kid Walt Rawley is recruited by a Jewish man, Mr. Yehudi, who claims he's seen "a great gift" in him. Soon after, Walt is taught to levitate several inches off the ground in a farm in the deep south, where Yehudi's family is threaten by the Ku Klux Klan and finally harmed.
Eventually, Walt achieves success performing this act in a tour across the country, until his Uncle Slim shows up to get his cut of the profits. Master Yehudi refuses, and Slim kidnaps Walt. Walt sneaks out but Slim escapes from the police and he wants revenge.
