Subject is from Michigan

Jimmy is a struggling Elvis Impersonator with no money, no job and three failed marriages. Donna is an extraordinary woman searching for something more than East Peoria has to offer while struggling with her marriage, her life and her explosive daughter, Lisa. But tragedy and comedy are about to collide. When larger than life Donna meets Bible-thumping, Jimmy, nothing will ever be the same again.

The adventure begins when Donna brings Jimmy home to live with her and her indifferent husband, Jerry. With visions of success, Donna proceeds to gamble their entire life savings and family stability on the dream of promoting Jimmy in her own lavish Elvis production in East Peoria. You can’t help but laugh as nothing they do ever seems to go the way they planned. When the show fails to rocket Jimmy to stardom, Donna never gives up her dream of turning this down-and-out Elvis Impersonator into a success. The mismatched pair then travels throughout the country trying to win an Elvis competition while creating a comedy of errors that tugs at your heartstrings.
