When a man comes home and tells his wife that he has been fired, they decide to start a private business with a bank loan.   The husband, a bumbling individual, obtains his loan but encounters a series of misfortunes as he tries to set up his business.  This drama presents, in vivid dramatic form, the value and cultural conflicts that often occur when a person goes into business.   Whether it's family or relatives requesting money for medical referral, friends looting the shelves of the store, or customers asking for credit, the problems are standard throughout the islands.  How does a business owner honor his bank commitments and create a successful business without appearing selfish and insensitive?
