A slumbering Georgia community almost chokes on their mint juleps when Hollywood calls to film the true-life (and death) story of a heroic local lawman. Aside from the chaos that trails in the movie-makers' wakes, one person has a very private reason for not wanting the intimate details of the gentleman's life-story revealed--his widow, Grace. So begins her inventive, comic crusade to obstruct proceedings, aided and abetted by a cast of quirky eccentrics, including the movie star's personal bodyguard, and a good-hearted ex-con with a private tragedy of his own. But, amidst the hi-jinks, nobody is prepared for the heartbreaking secrets that are finally revealed; secrets that will change all of them--hero, heroine, and movie star--forever.
