Synopsis

Evelyn Thacker has come home to Mud Creek for the sole purpose of telling her family that she’s leaving the mountains forever. But Evelyn doesn’t count on two things: her sister Faye’s plans (which include Evelyn’s marriage to her soon-to-be paroled ex-boyfriend, Jackson Bennett) and the unexpected arrival of her “city slicker” friend, O’Malley. A clash of cultures ensues, leaving a trail of shattered dreams, shattered secrets and shattered vehicles. Only a missionary priest with a sense of humor and a jug of moonshine have a chance of restoring the peace, reminding us that once you’ve seen the other side of the mountain, you can never go back.
