Everyone in town is enthralled with Molly's latest novel, which is a fictional account of life in Gibsons. They are so enthralled that they lose track of their regular day to day duties. Each is most excited by the larger than life depiction of the character who is based on him or herself. Their excitement grows when Hollywood director Mr. Palooka and his assistant Whitney come into town, they who are making a movie of the book and who seem to want to use the local person upon who the character is based to portray that character. As such, each person tries to act the way they see their self portrayed in the book. So they all happily sign the contract that Palooka places in front of them, all except Nick, who sees that the contract is not all it seems on the surface. When Nick convinces them all that they have basically signed their life away to Palooka, they have to come up with a way to regain their life back from him. They get some unexpected support in the matter. Written By Huggo  Less
