Anna has left graduate school to join the real world, as a writer on a children's television show in Orlando, Florida, she finds that world to be more surreal and absurd than anything she's left behind. Tomorrowland takes a darkly comic look at death, Disney, and the search for meaning in a world that worships the young and the fake.

"If you are not already terrified by the prospect of the Disneyfication of America, this wry exploration of its possible effects will put the fear of Mickey in you." – Charlie Whitehead, Time Out
