In the Baptist backwoods of the Bible Belt, the beleaguered Turpin family proves that living and dying in the South are seldom tidy and always hilarious. Despite their earnest efforts to pull themselves together for their father’s funeral, the Turpin’s other problems keep overshadowing the solemn occasion. What will Raynelle put on the tombstone? Will Junior pull over to the side of the road and shoot his wife or will she have the last laugh? Why isn’t Bud’s corpse wearing shoes? Will Marguerite get her useless son to church and what’s fried chicken got to do with all of this? You’ve just got to join the family to find out!
