Hollywood meets the small-town South when an action-movie star comes to a quirky Georgia community to film the true-life (and death) story of a heroic local lawman. The dead hero's widow, Grace, launches an inventive, often comic crusade to stop the filming of her late husband's very private story. She soon wins love and assistance from the movie star's personal bodyguard, a good-hearted ex-con with sad memories of his own. The movie star's nerdy son develops a crush on the heroine's shy niece, and Grace's colourful, cantankerous grandmother falls for a mysterious man from her (and her family's) past. When heart-tugging secrets come tumbling out, hero, heroine, and movie star are all surprised...and changed forever..
