Her tranquility is threatened by a brash real estate developer who wants to turn her land into a vacation resort, and by concern over her son,
Dillard, a country singer who has come home with two stranded children because his wife has run away.
Annie's battle to decide her future takes her through some funny, touching and magical flashbacks to her life with Hector.
Foxfire is a poignant drama about maintaining one's identity and memories through the inevitable march of time.
