Story of two women in the 1980s; of Mrs. Threadgoode telling her life story to Evelyn, who is in the sad slump of middle age. The tale she tells is of two women--the irrepressibly daredevilish tomboy Idgie and her friend Ruth--who back in the thirties ran a little place in Whistle Stop, Alabama, a Southern kind of Cafe Wobegon offering good barbecue and coffee and all kinds of love and laughter, even an occasional murder. And as the past unfolds, the present for Evelyn will never be the same.
