A teenage transplant from New York City, Tessa is perfectly at ease navigating the urban jungle she grew up in. So when her dad, George, a handsome architect in his late 30s, relocates her to greener pastures, Tessa goes into culture shock. While the suburbs may be heaven for many, for Tessa, they represent her unique version of hell. Forget purgatory — this is suburgatory. And now she is drawing lots of unwanted attention from overbearing suburban moms – like the blonde, bronze and buxom Dallas Royce. Dallas, mother of Dalia, Tessa's new nemesis, is intent on taking Tessa shopping, feeding her pot roast and snagging more face-time with Tessa’s handsome father. Will George be able to survive his own relocation plan? Will Tessa? Suburgatory is a family comedy that asks us not to judge our neighbors until we’ve gardened in their clogs. It is also about one man’s struggle to answer the question that has plagued parents for all time: Is the safe choice really the right choice?
