Civil War era Southern debutante Miss Magnolia Beatrice Devareux Beaumont has choked to death on the meat of a pork rib, only to find herself suddenly inhabiting the body of a thirty-something gay New Yorker (to whom she refers to as Master Joseph) on his way to Provincetown, Massachusetts for a birthday vacation.
