Reactions are swift in the small and decidedly rural town of Sulphur Springs, Tennessee, when the unmarried high school art teacher announces that she plans to enter a painting in the town's annual Spring Fling Art Show. The title of her painting: A Room Full of Naked Men.
It is not the content of the painting that matters as much as what people think the content will be. Family, coworkers, the girls down at the beauty shop, the over amorous editor of the local paper, the school board, and the Baptist preacher are just a few of the people we meet in this witty satire of small-town life.
When our heroine, Sara Louise Upshaw, gets embroiled in the controversy surrounding her painting, she also manages to get acquainted with the handsome owner of the only place in town that sells "flesh" colored paint as love catches her off guard!
A senile matron, five naked men running around town, a high society party that ends in a fistfight, a truckload of chickens, and the local doughnut shop are all elements in a story that shows that gossips and busybodies still hold sway in America today!
