A series of vignettes set the fictional Ohio town of Arcadia.
Vignette #1 “Shortwave”: During his weekly late-night talk radio show, Alan receives a mysterious call from a disturbed man named Kevin. As they talk, Alan tries to figure out if Kevin actually has information about dark goings on in Arcadia, or if he’s just a lonely kook.
Vignette #2 “Arcadia Homeowners’ Association”: Charlie, the overbearing President of a suburban neighborhood association, attempts to ensure that his neighbors are following the Homeowners’ Association handbook to the letter.
