Synopsis

Daltry Calhoun is the local hero of Ducktown, USA (which happens to be in Tennessee). The likeable entrepreneur at the head of his self-made company has put the tiny town on the map by producing locally grown grass--the legal kind--that now blankets some of the country's best golf courses. His goodhearted television spots have even become a part of Southern pop culture. But being in the spotlight sometimes comes with a price tag and, like it or not, Daltry is about to take a tumble from his pedestal. It seems that Daltry's not-so-heroic past--in the form of abandoned ex-girlfriend May and her musically gifted teenage daughter June--has now shown up on his doorstep. Terminally ill May is determined that June--a talented-beyond-her-years musician who can't read a note but who plays beautifully by ear--get into Julliard and she's equally determined that June's father, Daltry, look after their daughter in the coming years. June, however, is unaware of both her mother's condition and her filial relationship with Daltry, whom she recognizes from his hokey TV commercials; she's just glad to be going on a journey. While Daltry is glad--sort of--at the arrival of mother and daughter, the timing of it all couldn't be worse. Daltry's sod business is quickly going to seed and, unbeknownst to the worshipping town, he and his advisors have started liquidating his assets to stay afloat. Faced with the sudden prospect of having to be a father while watching his business slowly go under is almost more than Daltry can handle, despite the repeated offers of help from the extremely smitten local shopkeeper Flora. But Daltry is determined to face up to his past mistakes and make good in the eyes of Ducktown's citizens and his own family--it takes more than tired sod and the sobering prospect of instant fatherhood to keep a (reformed) good man down.
