Overview

Lately, sea turtles have been turning up in the most unusual places around Croaker Neck, a small coastal fishing village in the Down East region of North Carolina. Dodge Lawson sets out to learn who is behind the eco-pranks. He fears it might be his friends-a dying breed of backwater buckaroos struggling to retain their traditions and self-sufficient way of life.

When a Yankee filmmaker down to his last reel shows up in town, the pranks escalate and events spiral out of control.
