Synopsis: In 1953, a young woman called Francie is so determined to make a perfect pie that she overworks the dough, rendering it all but impossible to work with. When she brings the result of her efforts to a dessert social, it stands in stark contrast to the beautiful pies of other attendees. Francie’s response to her pie’s poor showing provides the comedic punch, quite literally, to the film.
