When Penny shows up with a broken arm, Willona, J.J., Thelma and Michael are certain that she is being abused, but they have a hard time finding someone who will believe them.
Willona becomes frustrated in her attempts to report her suspicions that Penny is being abused. Things become complicated when the Gordons suddenly move from their apartment.
In the concluding half of Good Times' fifth-season opener, the Evans' ten-year-old house guest Penny Gordon (Janet Jackson) lies about her relationship with her abusive mother. Concerned about Penny's "accidental" broken arm, neighbor Willona (Ja'net DuBois) takes the girl to the doctor, who refuses to believe that the child has been abused. Things get worse when both Penny and her mom (Chip Fields) disappear.
