Gary Coleman stars as little Joey Seymour, a clever but lonely orphan shuffled from one foster home to the next, who is also determined to be the best Cub Scout ever. Pearl Bartlett (Katherine Helmond) is a hard-working executive who dislikes children, but she must take on a troop of Cub Scouts and become a den mother to save her job.

On an outing, she takes her den to a nearby park where the boys discover a cave and decide to explore. By accident, they cause a "cave-in" and the excitement begins. But little Joey saves the day, and in the process, teaches Pearl the true meaning of caring. Pearl returns the favour as she offers Joey the best gift a deserving orphan could get... she officially adopts him.
