American Stare is a ferocious new comedy set in a South Florida trailer park where corporate greed meets its match in a community that will go to any lengths to protect its own. Following the spiraling lives of a widowed woman and her dog, a disabled accused child-predator, and a couple and their teenage daughter, we are challenged to see the world through their eyes – a world led by a broken moral compass, tainted with pervasiveness of special interests.
