Nosey Parker

Natalie and Richard Newman move to rural Vermont where they expect the unspoiled setting and the indigenous values to rejuvenate their marriage. Natalie wants to start a family; Richard, who has grown children from a first marriage, does not. As a compromise, they build a trophy house. The construction of this dreamhouse inevitably leads to a visit from the local tax assessors (known in Vermont as town listers). This confrontation introduces the Newmans to George Lyford, a lister, farmer, and somewhat xenophobic native. Over the course of two inspections, Natalie and George develop a flirtation, which eventually results in George becoming Natalie's handyman.
