Leading lady Carly Jean (CJ) Simms thinks she'd like to live in the era of her school play, "Buttermilk Hill". It takes place during the War Between the States, and she thinks being a lady of the manor would be very cool. She hopes to pull off the performance of a lifetime and win the drama award. The only thing keeping her from it is her mother who needs her at home to take care of her baby brother and aging grandfather.
"Realizing when your life isn't all that bad"
Carla is bored of the dull dinner parties and baby-talk her friends put her through. Until one day, she meets the antidote at one of them. Deacon is a charming, well-dressed swinger that might just find her interesting enough to invite her to a weekend getaway into his world. A world full of costume parties.
