Additional Info

Set in a small town in Kentucky, The View from Here is a comedy about an agoraphobic. Fern, a woman in her mid thirties, has not left her house for six years. She takes in neighborhood babies for a living. Her nurturing talents are put to the test when her sister lands on her couch in a catatonic state and her neighbor, whose wife has just left him, moves in along with his abandoned baby. In the midst of this confusion, Fern's fears are put to the test as well when she wins a microwave at the Super Krogers, but must appear in person to claim it. The View from Here is ultimately about healing and the pain that hope carries with it.
