Granny Murfree, head of the Murfree clan in the Tennessee Mountains, has one dying wish. Before she departs for the Promised Land, Granny wants her hillbilly family to learn and understand the words of William Shakespeare – the true sign of an "educated person." Granny's son, Pa Murfree, brings two university professors and two students up the mountain to teach the Murfree family about Shakespeare. As Billie Jean, Granny's granddaughter, falls hard for student Andrew when he recites Romeo's speech, the rest of the Murfree family attempts to grasp the language of the Bard. Hilarity ensues as the university "folk" make every effort to educate the comical Murfree family, while Granny holds onto a secret of her own.
