The White Elephant looms large over the quaint suburban town of Willard Park. A gaudy, newly constructed behemoth of a home, it soars over the neighborhood, dwarfing the houses that surround it. When owner Nick Cox cuts down Allison and Ted Miller’s precious red maple --- in an effort to make his unsightly property more appealing to buyers --- their once serene town becomes a battleground. While tensions between Ted and Nick escalate, other dysfunctions abound. Newcomers and longtime residents alike begin to clash in conflicting pursuits of the American Dream, with trees mysteriously uprooted, fires set, fingers pointed and lines drawn.
