Title:
Logline: A small South Carolina town loses its only employer when a mill closes, causing the town council to try to find a way to move the state line in order to take advantage of tax breaks in Georgia that would bring them a new car plant and save their livelihoods.

Why to Read: The Southern small town setting at the core of this story is expertly crafted, from the slightly surrealist tone to the quirky characters to their impeccable regional dialogue. A fantastic cast of characters connected by detailed and complex relationships help to make this town feel real, and make you care about what happens to it. The slightly ridiculous premise of trying to get the state line moved so they can live in Georgia instead of South Carolina is treated with just the right amount of heart and drama to make it matter, even as it makes you laugh. A story about a part of America that is often forgotten, this script speaks to an underserved audience while also resonating with every reader and potential viewer.
