WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

In Washington Irving's classic fable, a lackadaisical 18th century Dutch farmer in the Hudson Valley falls under the spell of magical mountain folk, sleeps for twenty years, and wake to find his world transformed. Rip's America, like our own, is one of bewildering change and astonishing growth— but at what cost to tradition? In this contemporary adaptation, Irving's tall tale becomes a lively celebration of community and the spell of nature, and asks a universal question: how do you return home when everything you know has changed?
