Synopsis

After two years in jail, Homer Hobbs, returns to his bleak small town during the depths of the Great Depression. With no job, no prospects and no hope - Homer finds a kinship with four strangers: Benny, the hustler eager to begin life anew in the sunshine of Florida; an odd local man Clarence, a nobody who aches to be somebody; Gracie, the gracious owner of a boarding house who lives with a secret; and Lucy, who harbors a mysterious past that threatens the life she has come to love. But on Sunday nights, in a dingy hall, the men of the neighborhood piece together the finest attire their meager lives can beg, borrow or steal to compete in an unusual fashion contest. The big winner will go home with the five dollar prize. The real prize - far less tangible, yet priceless - is the chance to feel like a king, if just for an evening.
