The death of an eccentric old woman stirs this small towns curiosity of a pos-sible hidden fortune. But as Mary Graving, played by Pamela Reed as a small town reporter, digs deeper for the truth, she uncovers a better understanding of her own place in the community and of the powerful bonds connecting her to those around her. The Hollywood Reporter described it as a spar-kling glimpse into the resilience of the human spirit. The screen-play was written by Judith Guest (Ordinary People) and features outstanding performances by Tacoma native Reed (Kindergarten Cop, The Right Stuff, and currently in Parks and Recreation) Vivica Lindfors, Zelkjo Ivanek (24) and Craig T.
