Maude is an unemployed bartender living in a trailer park, with a painting she bought for a few bucks from a thrift store. Despite almost trashing it, she's now convinced it's a lost masterpiece by Jackson Pollock worth millions. But when world-class art expert Lionel Percy flies over from New York and arrives at her trailer to authenticate the painting, he has no idea what he is about to discover.
