A DOCUMENTARY FILM
BY JOHN CORK AND LISA VAN EYSSEN
The remarkable true story of how a small town in Nevada redefined divorce and marriage, and changed the role of women in American society.
“This documentary will not glorify divorce. It will examine the personal, political and historical aspects of Nevada’s divorce trade, and how changing the  divorce laws created a more equal society between men and women. It’s a great story about a chapter of American history few people know about today.”  —John Cork, Writer/Director/Producer
