Somewhat north of Manhattan lies the quiet little town of Verplanck, New York. Nothing really exciting happens there but that isn't to say that life in Verplanck is boring. For one thing, the automobile of choice is the Yugo. For another, there seem to be more landscapers than land. But strangest of all, no one in this small town seems to blink when one of its best known and possibly least liked residents, Mona Dearly drives her Yugo into the Hudson River to her death.
