SYNOPSIS: In a desperate need of a noble cause to revive their public images, self-centered Broadway thespians Dee Dee Allen and Barry Glickman have come up with a foolproof plan to earn some positive publicity. In the national media, they read about Emma, a bright-eyed high-school student who has recently come out of the closet and only wants to take her girlfriend to the prom without drama. Intolerance and the local PTA stand in her way. The flamboyant celebrity activists and their fellow struggling actors, Angie Dickinson and Trent Oliver, head to the small town of Edgewater, Indiana, to right a wrong, with some hilarious bumps along the way. Eventually the community softens their hearts, sharing a message of inclusion and acceptance.
