A couple who is expecting their first child travel around the U.S. in order to find a perfect place to start their family. Along the way, they have misadventures and find fresh connections with an assortment of relatives and old friends who just might help them discover "home" on their own terms for the first time.
Straight-laced Rose breaks off relations with her party girl sister, Maggie, over an indiscretion involving Rose's boyfriend. The chilly atmosphere is broken with the arrival of Ella, the grandmother neither sister knew existed.
Jenna is unhappily married, squirreling away money, and hoping to win a pie-baking contest so, with the prize money, she'll have enough cash to leave her husband Earl. She finds herself pregnant, which throws her plans awry. She bakes phenomenal pies at Joe's diner, listens to old Joe's wisdom, tolerates her sour boss Cal, is friends with Dawn and Becky (her fellow waitresses), and finds a mutual attraction with the new doctor in town. As the pregnancy advances, life with Earl seems less tolerable, a way out less clear, and the affair with the doctor complicated by his marriage. What options does a waitress have? Written by

When the Exhausted Mother gets sprayed with silly string, the silly string changes color. As the mother and son are walking up to the porch, the silly string is blue. When the son sprays her during the first close up of her face, the silly string is pink. When the camera switches to Jenna then comes back to the mother, the silly string is blue again. See more »
I want to talk to you, somewhere outside of here. Maybe we can have a coffee or something?
I can't have coffee, it's on the bad food list you gave to me. What kind of doctor are you?

Gorgeously filmed story of Romance/Comedy in a southern town. Russell
is sweetly brilliant- soundtrack is soulfully supportive of storyline..
Loved this one and can't wait to see it again in my neighborhood.
Andy Griffin couldn't have been more on target. Other characters
Cheryl,Nathan, Jeremy- what can I say? brilliant casting.
Was thrilled to hear the film was picked up for distribution. The
viewer can't help but walk away from WAITRESS with good vibes.
Adrienne Shelley was VERY good and her talent as writer, producer will
be sorely missed. Was so sad to hear of her tragic murder.
Unbelievable. Truth is stranger than fiction.
