“Main Street” takes place in Durham County, NC, where the recession has hit hard. Numerous people are moving out and the city council is trying to find ways to increase their population and make their small town more attractive to outsiders. They receive a generous offer from the Environmental Services Corporation (ESC) and their spokesperson, Mr. Leroy (Colin Firth). Mr. Leroy starts by storing hazardous waste in Georgiana’s (Ellen Burstyn) bankrupt tobacco warehouse and he is offering the city a tremendous amount of money to do the same in other parts of the town. In addition to the main storyline, Harris (Orlando Bloom) is a sheriff’s deputy that is going to law school to impress Mary (Amber Tamblyn) and re-kindle their failed relationship. All the stories are intertwined and do not go according to plan.
