What happens when people stop being polite and start getting real?

According to the last few seasons of MTV's "The Real World," they get drunk, hook up and make innumerable questionable decisions.

What happens when strangers come to live on a family farm in rural Arkansas, grow their own food, give up modern-day conveniences and attempt zero waste?

While it may not sound like a compelling reality show by MTV's standards, that's exactly the premise of the independent film, "The Garden Summer," which debuted to a sold-out crowd in Charleston, South Carolina, on April 16. It also premiered in Conway, Arkansas, on May 18.
