The film focuses on two middleclass suburban families, circa 1950s (in upstate NY?) from the opposite sides of town and how one mistake sets off a problem which neither one has started.

The cast of unknowns are superb, as is Rene Auberjonois (Deep Space Nine) as the Reverton and Stanley Tucci as the lively police officer.
