Synopsis

Life in Mud Creek has never been easy and no one knows that better than Ida May Combs. Ever since her husband’s death, Ida May has supported her family by selling her beautiful hand-stitched quilts – and dealing prescription drugs. But times are changing. Ida May’s granddaughter Cindy has married the hated son of a rival moonshining family, her son Ronnie is having an affair with his best friend’s wife and Sheriff Ham Terhune is cracking down on the epidemic drug spree sweeping the area. As Ida May struggles to maintain control over her “family,” Ronnie and Cindy are forced to choose between love, loyalty… and life.
