Mel se ne more odločiti za ime novorojenega sina, dokler ne spozna lastnih bioloških staršev in odkrije, kdo je sam. Z ženo Nancy in študentko psihologije Tino se odpravijo na pot čez državo, da bi spoznali njegove starše.Mel Coplin se ne more odločiti za ime novorojenega sina, ker je sam posvojenec. S ciljem, da bi spoznal svoje biološke starše, se v družbi soproge Nancy in čedne študentke psihologije Tine odpravi na pot čez vso državo. Medtem ko njihovo potovanje premetavajo nepopisno zabavni zapleti in čudaške situacije, se Mel zaloti, da ga privlači zapeljiva Tina – kar prav nič ne moti njegove žene, ki ji spogledovanje z drugimi moškimi prav tako ni tuje. Do takrat, ko naposled srečajo Melova svobodomiselna biološka starša, njihova cestna pustolovščina povsem uide nadzoru.

Originalni opis filma:

Mel Coplin departs on a mission of discovery dragging his wife and 4 month old son behind. He and wife, Nancy, won't agree on a name for their son until adopted Mel gets in touch with his roots. He assures her that once he knows who he really is, the right name for their boy will be a snap. Enlisting the aid of student-psychologist and part-time adoption agent, Tina Kalb, they embark on a journey across the United States to find Mel's "birth" mother. "The best part," Mel tells Nancy, "is it's all free." Tina is finishing her dissertation and will film the happy reunion of mother and child as part of her research. For this privilege, she's footing the bill. His adoptive parents are left behind feeling abandoned by an ungrateful son. Clerical errors, mistaken identities, Nancy's misplaced high school friend and his gay lover, and a super-charged libido here and there are thrown into the mix along the way until -- at last -- Mel's real parents, the Schlictings (mispronounced as "Shit-kings" by Mrs. Coplin), are discovered in remote New Mexico. There, Mel begins to wonder if he would have been better off not knowing these people, after all.
