Logo - Spitfire GrillSee the final dress rehearsal of the indy-charmer The Spitfire Grill! Based on the 1996 film of the same title, The Spitfire Grill is about feisty parolee Percy Talbott who starts over in rural Wisconsin. She takes a job at Hannah’s Spitfire Grill, a crumbling diner where the gossipy townsfolk congregate, run by an ornery widow named Hannah.

For years, Hannah has unsuccessfully attempted to sell the diner to escape the memories it holds. Percy hatches a plan to hold a raffle for ownership open to anyone who pays one hundred dollars and writes an essay about why they want the Grill.

As the seasons change and rumors about her past build, the contest entries roll in by the wheelbarrow full, and Percy realizes that she's not the only one in town with a history.
