No one cares about potato racing more than the people of Appleton. Well, no one really knows about potato racing, except the people of Appleton. That’s all about to change, when Penny Anderson moves back to town, for a quiet life, to lick her wounds after her life fell apart in the city.
Penny comes from a long line of potato race champions and can’t believe it when she hears the men’s winner gets $2000 and the first woman past the post gets only $200.
She swings into action to right this wrong, pitting family against family, sister against sister, potato racer against potato racer.
