Former beauty queen Ima Jean Walker has returned home after twenty years to win a local talent contest which she is sure is the necessary springboard to jump-start her long-delayed career in country music. Her brilliant plan is thwarted when her high school rival appears on the scene to threaten her dreams of stardom and steal the spotlight. Sparks fly, claws come out, and southern charm is tossed out the window as jealousy and greed take center stage in this diva-filled southern comedy. A Breath of Dusty Air is a humorous yet touching story that reminds us some feuds die hard.
