“What happened to the American dream?”
Synopsis. Set in the USA heartland following the global 2008 economic collapse, Kate, a recently divorced suburban mother of two young girls struggles to hold onto the American dream. Facing home foreclosure, an inhibited and dysfunctional family, she finds herself with few opportunities and desperately seeks solutions. Connections of family, friends, work-place, business, media and community are explored in turn, and her father, Alan, faces an especially painful search for redemption.
