For Macbeth, white picket fences and pastel lawns are the only things blocking out the horrific memories of the Second World War. He and his wife have found peace in their idyllic suburban mundanity. But, in a world where the American dream feels as close as the imminent threat of nuclear annihilation, the Macbeths begin to wonder how far they’re willing to go to make it to the top. As the Macbeths descend further into their shared delusion, war flashbacks and visions of the future blur together into a surreal nightmare trapped in the Technicolor confines of a 1950s sitcom.
