Beneath the placid surface of suburbia, group of parents, trapped in middle-class stability, attempt to deal with marriage, kids and their suburban life in very different ways... For example, there's Mary Ann, a super-mom who has her life scheduled to a T; Todd, the handsome stay-at-home-dad who wants to reclaim his freedom; Sarah, a lapsed feminist who isn't quite sure how she ended up being a traditional wife and Larry, an ex-policeman bent on harrassing the local parriah to vent his life's frustrations.
