Movie Info

Framed by accusations of incest and overflowing with outrageous family secrets, director Ruth Leitman's Southern Gothic-flavored documentary tells the story of whiskey sippin', country singin' Southern Diva Margie Thorpe, and her lifelong quest to care for her mentally ill mother and alcoholic father. Margie's family isn't exactly a textbook example of stability; her father is a violent alcoholic and her mother Alma is a working class storyteller with the power to weave tragedy into tall tales.
