Hugh McGregor, a corporate trademark attorney for McGregor Corporation, happens upon the village of New Plockton, Iowa, where he discovers a Scottish Snuggery in violation of McGregor Corporation's trademark. Hugh's world view is then set on its ontological ear by Maddie McGregor, owner of the Snuggery. This is a story not so much of redemption, but of ontological transformation. Of a sort.
