Southern Roads

Ten years ago, a tornado tore through the Georgia mountains and obliterated the remote town of Sweetness. The three Armstrong brothers had deep roots in Sweetness, and pledging to make a change, they reunite to rebuild their hometown. Aided by an army of ex-military men, the Armstrongs make tremendous progress, but mutiny arises as the men grow weary for lack of women. Desperate, the brothers place an ad for 100 women with a pioneering spirit willing to help build a community, and surprisingly, they come! Soon Sweetness is a matchmaking town, and the possibilities for romantic adventures are endless: women in need of a change, women reaching a milestone in their life, women starting over, women recovering from a broken heart, women in search of the peace of the outdoors, women looking for a second chance, women in search of their inner steel magnolia…and men, men, men! Who will you send to Sweetness to find their happy ending?
