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.
