Dreams are like cucumber blossoms – highly delicate and embarrassingly loud in colour.
Martha Becker is a daydreaming pickle-grower with an artistic bent. While Martha’s life coaching father lures her into his business schemes in their church-turned-home, Mom takes an aspirin and does the books. Boyfriend John has plans up his sexy sleeve too, and Martha’s destiny seems set. But when a zealous sign painter lands in Martha’s agriculturally-inclined world, the sixteen-year-old finds a dream, a mentor, and a whole lot of trouble. Once spiky-haired Velvet accepts Martha as an apprentice, she sees a future well outside the cucumber patch—one that includes painting signs that will win her a place in art college. But do Martha’s in-your-face roadside messages go too far?
