When Trudy Turmans half-sister is unable to go on in her one-woman play, Eleanor, the Twilight Years, Trudy is asked to step inwith only one hours rehearsal. When it becomes obviousfairly quicklyto everyone that Trudy is not the actress that she led folks to believe, she decides to try to salvage the charity fund-raising event by entertaining the audience with the story of the night she spent with Elvis Presley. Trudy ends up revealing more about herself and her triumph over an abusive husband than she ever intended.
