Synopsis

Eating Rhode Island examines the political insanity of 21st-century America and the small state of Rhode Island that dares to be different. Rhode Island's Governor McGruder attempts to create a moral utopia out of the tiny state and finds support from his eccentric constituents. Soon people across the country are heading to Rhode Island in search of a better life. Among them are Danny and his wife, Sarah. Once in Rhode Island, Danny and Sarah take to their new lives with enthusiasm, until one day when a technicality dictates Sarah's exile to Massachusetts. Danny is left to choose between his wife and his newfound happiness in Rhode Island. Eating Rhode Island asks these questions: 1) how much government intervention in our everyday lives is necessary, and 2) can too much morality be bad, and when does too much morality cross the line into insanity? At the outset, Danny and Sarah's move from Texas to Rhode Island seems to be a great thing. But as the truths about this "moral utopia" are revealed, you must decide whether Rhode Island is an enlightened and progressive state or one that is secretly oppressive and cult-like.
