It’s Christmas break in the tiny colored town of Poplar Cove,
California. Nothing much happens there and three 12 year old best
girl friends, nicked named the Triplets, are making baby clothing
for their former teacher. The girls do not like their substitute
teacher, Miss Swanson .Everyone loves the town’s barber, Mr.
Peterson. Someone, perhaps one of the many hobos who frequent the
town searching for work, murders Mr. Peterson.
