Larry Ritter sets out to persuade every person in a small town to wear a gaudy bandanna without knowing the details of why. Using several aliases and playing on the quirks of some local characters he spins yarns, makes promises, and suggests why certain people will benefit from being part of this one time only special event. Only he knows that a single holdout could ruin it for him.
