Emma has lost her job but keeps her sense of humor as she struggles to keep her family going, even if they can't match the pampered lifestyle of her friends from "the Estates."
Her naIve, idealistic husband Charles is no help. His only concern is seeing that there are no preservatives, pesticides, or growth hormones in his food.
Their friend Andre, an unmarried, eccentric intellectual, is even less concerned with what he calls Emma's first world problems. He's content to live on pizza and donuts in his shack by the river.
When Emma uncovers a conspiracy of real estate developers to get Charles away from her and get Andre's property away from him, it is up to her to stop it.
A modern-day twist on Flaubert’s Madame Bovary sets the story in small-town America.
An amusing, if drawn-out, satire of suburban life.
