The Grift trailer

Waves of heat shimmer above a deserted two-lane pike snaking through the rural Tennessee countryside.  At the edge of the road a blinking neon sign welcomes road-weary travelers.  The Shamrock Motor Inn appears pleasant enough, but look deeper.  Things are not always as they seem.

If you stop, chances are you will be greeted by Kate Bender, a sultry, dark-haired siren.  Don’t be fooled by her innocent charm.  This seductive beauty serves up more than cool refreshment to beat the heat or a soft bed for the night.  You can be sure she’s sized you up in the twinkling of an eye and knows just what she can take you for.  Perhaps watching you from a table in the corner is John Bender, a teenage sociopath.  He and his sister are formidable rivals playing against each other for your attention, your money and anything else you might have.  You can bet William Bender, the ruthless patriarch of this cunning family of scam artists is nearby.  His friendly demeanor belies an artful schemer who, in an instant, can turn.

So if you are passing through this peaceful looking valley, you best keep going.  For in a place where the good guys and the villains change places as easily as a game of musical chairs, you’ll be wondering who the victims really are in this twisted tale of lies and betrayal. 

It’s 1948 in the small town of Caney Fork.  Nothing is realy what it seems in this peaceful setting.  Look deeper.
