Description: Trapped in small-town California USA, Ethan Inglebrink is searching for the perfect moment in a life that is running out of time. And the odds are against him. Ethan is an agoraphobic, drug addict obsessed with his garden. Ethan's neighbor, landlord and maniacal high school football coach Trevor O'Hart has big plans for Ethan: eviction. Ethan's older brother Todd, also the local sheriff, is convinced that Ethan's salvation must be orchestrated by an act of God and calls in the family priest to lead the crusade. As the countdown begins, Ethan is convinced that his search will end once he grows the perfect American Cowslip, a beautiful, rare flower that will be the centerpiece of his garden and a floral representation of his life -- and maybe even win him the town's Garden of the Year contest, with its $10,000.00 first prize, enough to cover Ethan's very delinquent rent and stop the coach from kicking him out of his life. Dueling gardens ensue as Ethan still manages at to convince his poker buddies and surrogate moms, Roe, Sandy and Lou Anne, that he shoots up insulin for his diabetic condition. Ethan's cover up pushes Roe to dig deeper -- only to find herself confronted by her own secret. Ethan's perfect moment may lie not in his garden but in the love and redemption offered by his 17-year-old neighbor Georgia, desperate to escape her abusive father.
