In the Baptist backwoods of the Bible Belt, the beleaguered Turpin                                                  family proves that living and dying in the South are seldom tidy and                                               always hilarious.  Despite their earnest efforts to pull themselves                                                   together for their father’s funeral, the Turpin’s other problems keep                                     overshadowing the solemn occasion.  Not since "STEEL MAGNOLIAS”                                                 has a more colorful and dysfunctional group of Southern eccentrics                                           gathered below the Mason-Dixon line. When the patriarch of the                                                  Turpin  family keels over dead in the first scene, the struggle to get                                                    him buried involves the whole clan, including the not-so-grieving                                                 widow who wants to put "Mean and Surly" on the tombstone.
