THE CANNIBALS OF MCGOWER COUNTY by Drew Larimore

SYNOPSIS:
Big hair, big plates of barbecue and big personalities are at the heart of McGower County in small-town Texas where Lindalyn, Viola and Sarah Nell congregate at the Spit Pit for a late night birthday celebration. The party is abruptly interrupted by Stun, Lindalyn's ex, a domestic abuser who goes on a rampage and as a result is shot dead three times. Drastic measures are taken when all three women decide to dispose of the body the best way they know how and the truth about their lives, the choices they've made and the revenge they long for culminate in a frenzied, unknown and primal face-off.
