This is Wales. This is the Lewis Family. This is the House of America. Abandoned by their father for a new life in California, siblings Sid, Gwenny and Boyo are left to care for their mysterious Mammy and her growing eccentricities. With the new mine encroaching in on the family home, their secrets are unearthed and dreams of America soon unravel. As tragedy unfolds, was reality ever what it seemed?
