This true-to-life story takes place in the great state of New Jersey... specifically in the little-known town of Firewood, where nearly half of the residents happen to be of Italian descent. It begins on a quiet spring afternoon in a backyard where two brothers are pitching a not-so-innocent game of horseshoes. A half-mile away, a widow and her adult son are about to sit down in their kitchen for a traditional Sunday dinner. Unbeknownst to any of the above, across town, a garage and its owner are engulfed in flames. These three conflicting scenes of hilarity, humanity and hysteria set into play this "it-could-happen-to-you" lighthearted comedy. Our tale's protagonist, Tee (Theresa) Rosetti manages her family, which includes her husband, Frank, and their teenage daughter, Joanna, and their modest two-story house. The chore of getting the garage rebuilt lands on her petite but strong shoulders. Before she can turn around, her world is invaded by a gathering of "problem solvers." Along the way, this farce gathers a cluster of characters. Some are lovable, others laughable but each plays a role in the journey toward the construction of a new garage for the Rosetti's.
