Associate Producers Scott and Sandra Graham

Katha and her husband Ryu have become allergic to their 21st-century lives. After they meet a charismatic man from a community of 1950s reenactors, they forsake cell phones and sushi for cigarettes and Tupperware parties. In this compulsively authentic Eisenhower America, Katha and Ryu are surprised by what their new neighbors—and they themselves—are willing to sacrifice for happiness.

“A clever, sharply drawn fantasy… makes a sneaky, compelling case for the seductions of living the Ozzie and Harriet life.” – New York Times
