Summary

Thirteen-year-old orphan Peejoe (Lucas Black) and his brother Wiley (David Speck) live on their grandma's isolated farm, serenely unaware of the world's complexity until Aunt Lucille (Melanie Griffith) blows in, seven kids in tow. She's just killed her abusive husband Chester, and wants to pursue her life-long dream of Hollywood stardom. Lucille dumps her children on mom; Lucas and Wiley move in with their uncle Dove (David Morse), the town undertaker.

As Lucille whizzes cross-country, chatting all the way with Chester's head (stashed in a patent-leather hatbox), Peejoe runs afoul of bigoted Sheriff Doggett (Meatloaf Aday). A group of African-American boys stage a sit-in at the town's white-only swimming pool and one winds up dead; Doggett swears it was an accident, but Peejoe knows better. The pool incident draws national attention, civil rights activists come to town, and Peejoe learns a hard lesson about doing what's right.
