See Dick grieve his dead mother. See Jane come home after decades away. See Sally lip-read her dog Spot. See Richard struggle to hold his family together. The classic Dick and Jane books are forced out of childhood fantasy and into harsh adult reality in this playful but heart-wrenching take on the “ideal” 1950s American family.
