After uprooting their lives in England for a new “dream” life in Florida running a trailer park, the Pemberton family finds it’s not the idyllic existence they’d expected. For starters, Mal’s in hot water with bullying park resident Troy and ends up literally wrestling his arch rival to try to put him in his place. Mal and his wife Jen are horrified when the park’s septic tank explodes, forcing them to employ Herman Bloch to fix it. To add to Mal’s woes, his over-critical mother-in-law Maureen arrives for a visit just as financial woes threaten to overwhelm the family unless they can get rich quick.
