The Revelations of Becka Paulson

In this adaptation of Stephen King's short story, Becka Paulson's humdrum trailer park life suddenly becomes very interesting after she accidentally shoots herself in the head while watching her favorite soap opera. The bullet lodges in her brain, leaving a small red dot in her forehead and turning her world upside down. Doc Fink, the town vet, can't find anything wrong -- but Becka notices changes. Suddenly, she's smarter than she's ever been and full of ideas for inventions. Plus, the Handsome Man photo that came with the picture frame is talking to her. He tells her about the town's dark secrets, including her husband Joe's lunch-hour affair with Nancy Voss down at the post office. The Handsome Man is the friend Becka never had -- and a better man than Joe, to be sure -- but is it really wise to count on the advice of a man who lives in an 8x10 frame?
