Maude, a fifty-something unemployed bartender living in a trailer park, has bought a painting for a few bucks from a thrift store.

But when world-class art expert Lionel Percy flies over from New York and arrives at her trailer home in Bakersfield to authenticate the painting, he has no idea what he is about to discover.
