After being released from a five-years sentence for manslaughter, Percy Tolbert travels to the small town of Gilead, WI, to begin a fresh start. She finds a job at the town's only resturant, The Spitfire Grill, that happens to be for sale. With no interest, a plan is developed to raffle it off-which works better than anyone would have thought. This musical triumph is an inspiring celebration of fresh starts and the power of what one person can do.
