All the townspeople live happily in a weird combination of small town southern culture and traditional Far East customs, or at least their perceptions of them.

As he blows into the quirky town, the tough and road-hardened Dirk can’t help but draw attention.

Yet Rose already has a beau, Dewey Jr., who fancies himself a modern day samurai and runs the Double Death Dojo.
