Known throughout town as ‘Miss Hot Tamale,’ she’s out to change everyone’s perception of her so she can leave town in a blaze of glory. Together with her quirky friend Popeye and erratic duo of cousins, Elain and Delmount, she braves the odds to prove the world wrong. The Miss Firecracker Contest is an American classic filled with heart and hilarity that will have you rooting for the underdog.
