An American family moves to Manchester, England and attempts to lead a more local existence. From living without a car to eating locally produced food to installing an energy meter, this family strives to break out of the consumption-obsessed, car-centered lifestyle. The film playfully explores the patterns of living which have become prevalent within the American way of life.
Hoping to raise awareness of what the American lifestyle looks like from an insider-outsider point of view, the filmmaker challenges the viewer to become more aware of the impact of their daily routines on the environment, international relations and personal health.
