Storyline

In the small town of Rome, Wisconsin, the daily life of the quiet townspeople is disrupted when the Tin Man drops dead during a local production the "The Wizard of Oz" due to nicotine poisoning. Sheriff Jimmy Brock's investigation to the "accident" is further complicated by the fact that his wife, Jill, the local physician, has privileged information pertinent to the case. Meanwhile, Officer Kenny Lacos and Sheriff Brock's daughter, Kimberly, from his first marriage, make the acquaintance of a lounge singer passing through town. The other members of Sheriff Brock's family are his and Jill's sons; the borderline juvenile delinquent Matthew, and the sensitive young Zack. The authority figures introduced are the elderly defense and semi-senile public defender Douglas Wambaugh, the stern Judge Henry Bone, fellow police officers Lacos and Maxine Stewart, and the elderly dwarf receptionist Ginny.
