Storyline

Predatory, shameless, and obnoxious ambulance chasing lawyer Geraldine Ferrett gets busted in the remote small town of Stuecksville for a moving violation. Ferrett initially thinks that she can simply resolve the situation by paying a fine, but soon discovers that the folks in Stuecksville have a very odd and strict concept of justice.
