Walter Price is directing a movie that has gone over budget. Having been kicked out of his New Hampshire filming location, Price must quickly find a new, low budget location that can quickly pass as a 19th Century village. He soon comes across the quaint town of Waterford, Vermont. According to the brochure the town is equipped with a firehouse, a mill and a population eager for the glitter of Hollywood - Price thinks he has it made. However, he soon finds out that the mill, a crucial piece in the film, was destroyed several years ago in a fire. This is the first in a series of mishaps, including a star who prefers young girls and a suspicious car crash, that threaten to shut the film down.
