Somewhere in The Great Smokey Mountains exists the Sleepy Time Motel. The run down, overgrown, motel has seen better days.  What it hasn’t seen are many customers, until an odd combination of people who seem to have nothing in common end up together in this “nowhere” of a place.  In alternating chapters, the lives of several families converge on the once thriving Sleepy Time Motel. Join the adventures, as these unusual groups of people, who are adrift in their lives, find friendship, acceptance and a place to belong.  (New Hampshire Great Stone Face nominee, 2009-2010)
