In Iowa, laid-back Bob has won the state fair's butter-carving contest 15 years running; his tightly-wound and hard-charging wife Laura sees Bob becoming governor, so when the contest organizers ask him to step aside so others can win, she's incensed; when Bob won't protest, she decides to enter herself. In the county contest, she's up against Destiny, an African-American foster child, and Brooke, a prostitute Bob hasn't paid. When things don't go Laura's way, she enlists the help of Boyd, an old boyfriend. Laura's step-daughter and Destiny's foster parents are in the mix as things heat up at the state fair. What are Destiny and Laura's destiny?
A comedy about sex, power and spreading the wealth.

The incredibly hard to read URL in the Blu-ray "Deleted and Extended Scenes" clip, "Destiny's Party & Painted URL," is a YouTube link to a movie tie-in spoof protest video, "PETA protest at Red Ribbon Dairy - 1996" (YouTube ID: ex7caD1fb0E). See more
After her rant in the car on the way from from losing to Destiny, Laura's audible thoughts begin "This is exactly why I stopped watching American Idol ... ". The banner for the competition says it's taking place in 1998 whereas American Idol started in 2002. See more
I believe in America. I believe we are the best. I believe we're number one. And I won't apologize for that. My husband and I are survivors. We fought tooth and nail to get where we are today. How? The old fashion way, hard work and a can-do attitude. And here in the great State of Iowa, no less, where all great battles begin. My name is Laura Dean Pickler, and this is the cut-throat story of greed, blackmail, sex, and butter.
