When an inexplicable ball of light begins to shine in Dillard County, GA., it sends the townspeople scurrying for answers. What is it? Where did it come from? What does it want? Some ignore it, others dismiss it, some swear it is a UFO waiting to land. But, during the course of one long night, five people, gathered together at the "Home of the Light Cafe", will have their questions answered ... and the answers will change their lives forever.

- LISA [PELUSO] IS LOVING LIGHT BURGERS - "Merrillee is a cross between Designing Women's Suzanne Sugarbaker played by Delta Burke, Betty White, and A Streetcar Named Desire's Blanche. The light can be a metaphor for anything that is different, that people may not necessarily be able to explain or understand ... it's not a religious play ... but it is very spiritual." - Soap Opera Weekly, New York
