A clever new musical comedy, based on the short story by Mark Twain. The zany small town of Deer Lick, Missouri is thrown into frenzy when a mysterious visitor arrives. A young romance is put to the test and a town patriarch is murdered. Was it the local store clerk with a vendetta or the suave Frenchman? Small town antics, homespun humor and Bluegrass melodies build to an adventure of clues. Will Mary marry the wrong guy? Or will love and truth save the day? Only the wit, wisdom and satirical humor of Mark Twain could answer these questions.
