A couple, spirited but low on cash, challenges conceptions of Middle America

Adam, a perpetually upbeat limo driver, and Megan, a stay-at-home-mom, live an unglamorous but happy life in a small town in Middle America. This documentary follows the couple in the hours leading up to the TV première of Megan’s appearance on the gameshow Who Wants to be a Millionaire? As the day unfolds, two very different portraits of the couple emerge: the dreary image painted with broad brushstrokes by local and national media, and the complex, humanising picture that’s captured by the filmmakers, brothers Bill and Turner Ross.

Director: Bill Ross, Turner Ross
