But I’m from a small town in the Midwest, and the town I grew up in had a business leave that kind of affected everyone in town, and the town started to slowly dry up. And that was very common with recent events after 2008. We want to tell a story where you have parents, after this tragic event go back to Smallville and really find out that raising kids maybe is easier. in a place where life is not so hectic. “.
