You have to get off the freeways in America to find a by-road town like Atlanta, Texas where folks thrive on gossip, tie swayback horses in their front yards, hang washtubs on the back porch like a coat of arms, and plant petunia beds wrapped in old tires that hug dilapidated back porches. Simple, honest houses.
The roads are dusty in summer and sinkholes in winter. Bitzy Smith lives in Atlanta, Texas. She’s spent her whole life trying to do the right thing but keeps coming up against the brick wall of life. She loves one man, wayward husband, Beau Smith. Beau is trying to rebuild a past he can see and smell and shape with his hands.
His luck runs about as true as a bent horseshoe. He’s been leaning in and out the easy curves of life until a straight road lands him back in Atlanta, Texas and into the arms of Bitzy… he hopes.
