Two 1990s teenage siblings find themselves in a 1950s sitcom, where their influence begins to profoundly change that complacent world.
David Wagner is a kid whose mind is stuck in the 1950s. He’s addicted to a classic 50’s sitcom television show called “Pleasantville”. Pleasantville is a simple place, a place where all of its citizens are swell and simple-minded folks, a place where the word “violence”, and life outside of Pleasantville, is unbeknownst to its inhabitants; things are perfect down in Pleasantville. One evening, the life of David and his obnoxious sister Jennifer take a bizarre turn when an eccentric repairman hand them a supposed magical remote. After a quarrel between the siblings, they inexplicably zap themselves into the world of “Pleasantville”. Now, David and Jennifer must adjust to a 50s lifestyle of repressed desires and considerably different societal values while trying to find their way home.
