Calvin Simms is a very short thief and convict who plans to steal a diamond from a jewelry store with his dimwitted partner Percy P. Once the two successfully steal the diamond, their plan unexpectedly takes a turn as Calvin ends up dropping the stolen diamond into a random woman's purse after the two are being chased by the police. The two crooks follow the woman and her husband to their home to find out that they desperately want to have a child, so they hatch up a plan to pass off Calvin as a baby that was left on their front door step in order for them to get the diamond back.
