Jaye Tyler is a loner living in Niagara Falls who, after graduating college, has fallen into a carefree comfortable rut living in a trailer park and working as a retail clerk in the Falls souvenir shop of Wonderfalls. Suddenly the souvenirs, and anything else with an anthropomorphic face, start talking to her, insisting in cryptic single-sentence messages that she do things--or there will be dire consequences, or at least lack of sleep. When she acts, the resulting ping-pong effect appears to be the work of a divine plan. Soon Jaye becomes smitten with a local bartender, but the figurines start telling her to do things that go against every fiber of her being. Jaye becomes a reluctant savior forced into the lives of others and leaving her overachiever family befuddled and her comfortable life--and her very sanity--at risk.
