"Based on a true story, a small-town nurse named Susette Kelo (Catherine Keener) leaves a bad marriage, and starts over in a new town. She buys a rundown cottage, refurbishes it with her bare hands, paints it pink, meets a great guy (Callum Keith Rennie), and exhales.
Then she discovers powerful politicians want to bulldoze her blue-collar neighborhood and hand the land over to Pfizer (execs are eager to expand their facilities because they have high hopes for a soon-to-be-released drug called Viagra). The redevelopment effort is spearheaded by Dr. Charlotte Wells (Jeanne Tripplehorn). She is ambitious, accomplished, and the closest thing the gritty town has to a celebrity.
Susette emerges as the reluctant leader of her neighbors. She fights all the way to the Supreme Court, inspires a nation, and helps millions of Americans save their homes."
