The perfect town of Ridgington, everyone follows a strict regimen of routines, rituals, and traditions. Today is Cleansing Day, the only time when each family has the right to tell each other the truth that's been pent up all year. Every other day, they must smile and nod, just as they do in public to hold their lives and families together.
