love, has unexpectedly found success running a monthly tag sale after

feeling under-appreciated and in a rut with her husband and kids, rents
a stall at Dara's tag sale, and now the two women are embarking on a
two-week antiquing/thrift shopping road trip. However, things take an
unexpected turn when they meet Jonnie and offer her a ride with them to
Florida. But they soon learn Jonnie has been hiding a few key facts:
Jonnie has poisoned her abusive husband, and now she's on the run."
