Synopsis: In an Alabama town in the early 1950s, during the last polio summer, 10-year-old Tabitha Rutland, a tomboy with a passion for Roy Rogers, seeks adventure with her best friend Maudie May. As they meddle with the local bootlegger, row out on the Tennessee River to land the biggest catfish ever, and snoop into the town's darkest secrets, Tab sets out to be a hero -- and comes of age in an unforgettable confrontation with human frailty, racial injustice, and the healing power of love.
