Potato Dreams of America

By Wes Hurley

Synopsis

Lena and her 9‑year-old son, affec­tion­ate­ly called Pota­to, try to escape the harsh real­i­ty of their native Vladi­vos­tok after the fall of the Sovi­et Union through Amer­i­can movies. Swept up by the fan­ta­sy of a bet­ter life, Lena decides to become a mail order bride so she and Pota­to can go to the US. When they arrive in Seat­tle to live with Lena’s new hus­band John, Pota­to and Lena both find that they are in for a lot of surprises.
