Live without limits.
Love without question.
Laugh without apologies.
"No better than a pack of heathens." That's what their grandmother called Charma Deane, Bess and Minnie, three cousins growing up in rural Orla, Arkansas.
To them, nothing could be better than being a heathen girl. But when life gets complicated, even the wildest girls grow up. Charma Deane learns that lesson the hard way when Bess steals her fiance, fails to tell her about her mother's death and then threatens to evict their aunts from their family home.
Now, years after leaving the "Aunt Farm" behind, Charma Deane is back to make peace with the past and repair the strained ties with Bess. Together again, the threesome tears up the town in a gold-toned hearse, facing their demons and finding something they didn't realize they'd lost. And as the hot Arkansas summer fades into fall, the three heathen girls remind each other of their old vow: live without limits, love without question, laugh without apologies and make sure that whoever dies first won't be sent to heaven looking like hell.
