Connie Cannell is the "Domestic Editor" of the small town newspaper who spends her days chasing stories of odd-shaped vegetables. Stuck in a dead-end marriage to Harvey, Connie yearns for passion. Connie is frequently visited by her muse, Spitfire, who articulates Connie`s underused sense of passion and bluntness, and fun often summoning up Connie`s romantic ideal in the spectacular Euroman. Connie`s life takes a sharp turn when Darla Jean, a colorful Texan, moves into a house down the street and the two become instant friends. They joke about being Thelma and Louise and head out to the big city where she can start a new life and dare to do what she has always dreamed of doing - writing a book. Connie places an ad asking for submissions of "humorously sexy" stories to be used in her book. Connie receives a response from The Voyeur who works in a film lab. He invites Connie to a private screening of his collection. She leaves the viewing room aware of how naive she is.
