in a small town, Bob won the state Butter Carving contest for 15 years. his wife Laura saw this as a chance for Bob to become the town's governor. when the contest organizers asked Bob to stop competing so others had a chance to win, Laura fought back when Bob decided to withdraw. in the end, she decided to enter herself. at the same time, a foster child named Destiny has a talent with butter carving and found herself going against Laura for the contest.
despite not having much plot to work with, the film was surprisingly entertaining. there were also enough comedy to keep the somewhat serious plot, especially in Laura's role, lighthearted. the exaggeration was hilarious and unbelievable at some point, but still tolerable as it made everything even more dramatic and enjoyable.
