Ethan’s People, according to press notes, "centers around two closely knit suburban couples. On a morning in late summer while husbands and best friends, John and Sam are on their way to work an 'accident' happens that irrevocably alters the safe pattern of their daily lives. Suddenly Sam begins to disappear without telling his wife Janice where he’s going. When Ethan, Sam’s six-year-old son, reads a nursery rhyme he’s written in school expressing his disturbance about the accident he is made fun of by the other children. Angered by her husband’s behavior and concerned about her son, Janice takes extreme measures to bring Ethan back to normal as Sam reasons that what is happening to Ethan is normal."
