Go on an outing to the 'burbs. Amidst the fresh foundations of monster homes, surrealist filmmaker Gary Burns and journalist Jim Brown explore the dark side of suburbia and creates a provocative reflection on why we live the way we do. Shows a Canadian family as they struggle with existential despair and are exacerbated by the drabness of their suburban locale
