The Bill Murray Stories: Life Lessons Learned From a Mythical Man Time for Ilhan

Eureka Springs, Arkansas, is the total opposite of New York. Only 2,000 people live in this secluded village surrounded by wooded hills. There aren't any traffic lights or even a single intersection where the streets meet at a right angle. Tourists visit Eureka Springs to walk along its charming streets surrounded by Victorian architecture, breathe in its clean air and bathe in waters famous for their healing properties. Evenings can be spent here watching a play about the passion of Christ, performed with opera-worthy panache. Others are drawn by top-notch Christian drag shows. This small town is a meeting point for different views of faith. Orthodox Evangelicals and gay believers demanding a place in the Christian community stand shoulder to shoulder, seeking answers to fundamental questions about religion, love, tolerance and human rights. We may differ, we don't have to agree, but we have to live side by side-that's America! says one of the protagonists.
