The small town of South Farmingham is turned upside down when Sherry, a middle-aged introverted librarian, uploads a video of herself singing onto the website of the hit TV reality show “America’s Brightest Star.”  Her video unexpectedly receives millions of views, which prompts an invitation to perform on the show.  Awkwardly shy, she resists, but is prodded along by her celebrity-craving assistant Amber, the ambitious mayor Dolores Danton, and Cecil Ravinsdale, the cock-sure host of “America's Brightest Star.” Addressing issues of humanity's differing relationships with fame, fortune and social media, this dark comedy tackles fleeting fame, dying towns, and raw talent.
