In November 1995, 350 people became contemporary pioneers. They were the first inhabitants of Celebration, the latest version of the American Dream, built in the Florida swamps by Disney, the fairytale and amusement park corporation. A real town with real inhabitants. A beautiful, clean and sun-drenched city with gorgeous retro houses, where everyone knows each other and safety and community spirit are considered of paramount importance. Almost ten years later, the town boasts a population of 8.000. The film follows six couples looking for utopia. All inhabitants remember their first visit to the Disney World theme park, a world free of worries, where dreams can become true. This is how it should be in real life.
