"Everything's Better in Barryville" is a revolution, an adventure into the changing character of rural America, where long-time locals look with suspicion at city folk planting their flags in the country to re-start their lives, and get “back to the garden.”
Part Twin Peaks, part Footloose, and part Green Acres for the modern world, "Everything's Better in Barryville" is the last hope for a town divided, where the backroads are dotted with Trump signs, even as gay bikers roll through town during the steamy high season of the summer
"Everything's Better in Barryville” is the climax of civilization.
