Tod and Buz, working as laborers in a factory in Amity, Ohio, meet a strange young woman at their boarding house. She is towing a headstone on a trailer behind her car-with the person's date of death from 10 years before. Finding she is a pariah in Amity, Tod and Buz offer help in carrying out her unusual mission. Written by
Susan Oliver comes to a small Ohio town, wanting to transfer her mother's body from a potter's field to the highest place in the local cemetery. She has the legal right to do so and has paid for it. But everybody is against it, including Tod and Buz's boss at a local factory, whom they have been getting along well with- until now. That changes when Sue hires them to dig the grave and transfer the body. That results in (still another) fight. The dead woman was basically the town tramp and had had "corrupted and demoralized" everyone in the town, including their boss. Nobody will tell this to Tod or Buz or give details, allowing Will Lorin, who wrote this, to hold it back from the viewer until the last scene, which has an interesting twist that leaves one wondering what Sue really thought of her mother.
It's supposed to be very touching but I found it more confusing.
