Baby Boomer parents gallivant around the country in a Winnebago, leaving the family farm in the care of their immature son and his conniving wife. What could go wrong?
Stashes is set in Michigan, where auto manufacturing and agriculture forged a reliable middle class. It's Fall 2009, after unfortunate real estate practices gutted the American Dream. The plot focuses on two couples: the traditional, yet spunky Jackie and her dairy managing husband Steve, and their son, Brandon and his conniving wife, Amy. When Brandon loses his job and home to foreclosure, he and Amy must move in with the folks, who, with a desire to be as capricious as their kids, leave their homestead in the care of Brandon and Amy to travel the US by RV. Amy expands the business with pot cookies, dragging Brandon and Jackie into the scheme. As the local bank's VP, Amy secretly increases the Home Equity Line of Credit that financed the RV. Oops! Stashes is a comical crossover between family saga and drug caper, satire spun with good-natured American wit and grit.
