|Plot Summary of A Perfect Fit|
|"Meet Eli, Midge, Ira and Adam Jacobs – a middle class Jewish family from San Diego suddenly plunked down in a small town in the midst of the Ozarks of Arkansas. Their unseemly residency where no Jews had gone before generates a variety of obstacles and challenges for the family. While desperately attempting to obtain acceptance, the family encounters such town residents as the girl of Adam's dreams, the hairdresser who also works on pets, the tent revival preacher, the town drunk who brings cat food to the Ladies' Auxiliary potluck and the reclusive neighbor lady who's the area's major moonshine supplier.
Ultimately, Adam's galvanization of the citizens in defense of a friend in need, Ira's Halloween discovery of the true fabric of the town, Midge's increasing efforts to assimilate her ways into Ozark culture and Eli's tragic death followed by the revelation of the mysteries of his past all result in a scenario never anticipated for the Jacobs family."
