A movie spun out of equal parts folk tale, fable and real-life legend about the mysterious, 1930s Tennessee hermit who famously threw his own rollicking funeral party... while he was still alive.

It's the 1930s and in Caleb County the loathed hermit, Felix Bush, offers a large amount of money to the local reverend, Gus Horton, to organize his funeral, but the preacher refuses the request. Family man, Buddy Robinson, overhears the conversation and talks to his boss, Frank Quinn. They decide to visit Felix and offer him the services of their funeral home. Felix requests a funeral party and invites anyone that has a story to tell about him to come. Furthermore, he offers his three hundred acre land up as a prize in a raffle. When Felix asks Buddy to drive him to Illinois to see Rev. Charlie Jackson, Buddy learns that Felix has a painful secret and needs the help of his friend to disclose it to the population.
