FULL-LENGTH. The residents of the small town of Bethel are facing a crisis: their beloved park has been sold out from under them and it’s sending their lives into a tailspin. The sudden shift has also made them realize they’re more connected to each other and the nature around them than ever before. Now they must act on it.

Through seven interconnected vignettes, the sixteen citizens lose their jobs, homes, and spouses but find love, faith, courage, and forgiveness. From a fisherman who can’t catch anything to a tired cop trying get home to her kids, from a young mayor in over his head to two non-runners training for a marathon and running from their past, everyone takes a fall…and picks themselves up again. Spanning the four seasons of the year, the park magically transforms over a single day.
