Lisa, a New Yorker turned Idahoan, finds herself pulled into a neighborhood battle over who is to blame for recent playground vandalism. Her new friend Tabby believes it is the refugee children from Iraq. The fight that ensues will force Lisa to reevaluate her friendship with Tabby, her marriage, her place in Idaho and her own deeply buried prejudice about Muslims. Foothills Park is a story about a community coming face to face with the source of its fear and prejudice, and the struggle of one New Yorker trying to find her place in a far away land called Idaho.
