The Spitfire Grill is the story of Percy Talbott, a young woman who must overcome her past as she searches for a new life. Her fresh start takes her to a mostly deserted Wisconsin town and a job at The Spitfire Grill. In a last ditch effort to keep the Spitfire from shutting down, the owner decides to raffle it off. Mail starts arriving by the wheelbarrow full and things are definitely cookin’ at The Spitfire Grill! The contest starts an economic turn for the town and in the midst of this renaissance; Percy realizes she has finally found what she has always longed for… a home. Audiences will be impacted by Percy’s journey of renewal and forgiveness. (PG)
