Storyline: Trotter pollster Pete Marshall is trying to find a missing coworker. In a rural town he stumbles onto the roughian Fleagle family. Bert and Mert would just as soon “splatter” snoopers with their rifles. However, Ma Johnson focuses the family energies on finding cousin Bonnie Fleagle’s $70,000 bank job stash, somewhere around the large old rickety house. Claire Matthews, the daughter of a man implicated in Bonnie’s bank job, also comes in search of the money to try and clear her father’s name. Marshall and Matthews team up to try and decode Grandma Fleagle’s strange deathbed clue but with Mr. Johnson attempting to poison people and Bonnie Fleagle showing up herself after a prison escape, it’s anybody’s guess as to who will find the money first.
