Set in a resort-style fishing lodge in rural Georgia, the plot revolves around 2 of its guests, Charlie Baker and Staff Sergeant Froggy LeSueur. Charlie is so pathologically shy that he is unable to speak. As way of explanation, Froggy claims his companion is the native of an exotic country who does not understand a word of English. Before long, Charlie finds himself privy to assorted secrets and scandals freely discusse in front of him by the other visitors. These include spoiled but introspective heiress and Southern Belle, Catherine Simms and the man to who she is somewhat reluctantly engaged and impregnated by, the Reverend David Lee, a seeminlgly humble preacher with a dark underside. Her younger brother, Ellard, a somewhat “slow” boy is a simpleton who tries to teach Charlie how to speak English. Owen Musser, the racist county property inspector, pla ns to oust property owner Betty Meeks and convert the lodge into a meeting place for the KKK. Yes, this IS a comedy!
