Synopsis:
Electrical engineer David Martin and wife Jean are all wide-eyed optimism as they find their dream house in the Sunrise Hills subdivision and are immediately welcomed to the neighborhood by eager, earnest, slightly oleaginous appliance store owner Herman Kreitzer and his suspiciously eager wife Jean . The Kreitzers invite the Martins to their neighborhood BBQ they throw every week, and the fun begins. In short order the Boones move in. Southern man Troy is an auto mechanic by trade, but he’s come to California seeking a new start, hoping to get his drinking under control and to land a job as police chief.
His lusty, unhappy wife Leola isn’t making it easier for him to regain control by pushing him to impregnate her, against his wishes. A few doors down, morose Jerry Flagg begins his days with a martini and keeps the alcohol flowing as the day unfolds (“I like to drink, honey,” he tells his wife. “It makes me feel like somebody.”); while he’s at it he humiliates long suffering spouse Isabelle by consorting other men’s spouses. Meanwhile, David Martin is revealed to be struggling financially, but resisting his wife’s urgings that he go into the more lucrative field of sales. He makes one of the few sensible decisions any of the characters make in insisting on staying an electrical engineer, the job he knows best. When Troy is denied the police chief’s job owing to his lack of education, he goes on a bender that brings him into Isabelle Martin’s orbit, leading to him sexually assaulting her, and then beating up her angry husband, all the while claiming “she wanted it!”
