Description
Pie in the Sky, an adventurous romp through the summer of 1959, begins in a Junkyard, where Holly, an enterprising 13-year-old, encounters her similarly enterprising - though somewhat eccentric - Uncle Jeremiah. The two join forces and set off on a daring and brash trek through the back streets and small towns of rural eastern United States with the singular mission to “Strike it Rich!” While the formula for reeling in the money seems, for the most part, to elude them, they have no trouble getting themselves entangled in one crazy scheme after another. In the end, though they have very little to show for their efforts in terms of cash, they’ve learned that people aren’t always what they seem and making money isn’t the only way to become rich.
