Summerland tells the mysterious tale of William H. Mumler, a spirit photographer with a talent for capturing haunting images of the dead from the world beyond the veil Summerland. Based on true events that didn t exactly happen this way, Summerland is set in Mumler s New York studio in 1869 at the height of the American Spiritualist movement. Summerland opens at the peak of Mumler s career, just as his wildly successful studio trade comes under indictment for fraud. Chief Marshal Joseph Tooker investigates Mumler s past and his process, uncovering much more than he bargained for in his search for truth. Summerland is about the collision between the two men s opposing beliefs about the afterlife. Is it a hoax, or is it real? Finding the answer to either question threatens to destroy them. Are we standing between two worlds, are there such things as spirits, or is it only Mrs. Mumler moving in the shadows? No evidence remains, only lingering questions: What happens to us when we die? Do our loved ones really await us in Summerland?
