San Andreas, California. It may be a quaint town, but its residents have high hopes for its future as a tourist destination. There's Bill the ixer, the handyman who sidelines in chainsaw-sculpted redwood sculptures; real estate agent Margaret Nam, who plans to make a mint rehabing beach shacks; and Jimi, the well-to-do hair stylist whose chair is the epicenter of town gossip. Amid their town's growing pains, widower Linc Ellis and Tassy Morgan, a recently divorced painter, meet and -- much to their surprise -- sparks begin to fly.
