Based on the novel by Ira Levin (author of "Rosemary's Baby"). Joanna, a photographer, and her family are the newest residents of the seemingly pleasant community of Stepford, Connecticut. Joanna finds it increasingly difficult to adjust in a town full of women who seem to smile all the time despite being both humorless and clueless. Joanna befriends fellow newcomer Bobbie and the two set out to investigate the strange behavior of these women and the suspicious pasts of the town's men, all of whom belong to an ominous secret society.
