Meet Tracy Lemon, owner of the popular Citrus Salon in her small Western town. Tracy is married to a cop who wants to become detective. But the police chief has passed over Carl's application and hired a fancy L.A. detective whose influence chases away community policing in favor of "never give 'em an even break." From traffic fines to arresting grieving widows to incarcerating a pet boa constrictor, Chief Fort Dukes and his sidekick Dwight Bassoon are changing the tenor of the town. When mother of five Dixie Service is arrested for stealing credit card numbers at the Pay & Go gas station and husband Carl is kicked off the investigative team, Tracy realizes she needs to step in. Meanwhile, her octogenarian customer Mrs. Oscar has welcomed a cousin home from the Korean War who has suffered from amnesia for 60 years. He cuts open an old safe and discovers a scandal that could cost Chief Fort Dukes his job. Will sweet justice prevail?
