Herland tells the story of Jean who is in her seventies, recently divorced, and not moving into a retirement home. She recruits her two best friends since forever and an intern, a college-bound girl from down the street, to design a utopian alternative for the next chapter of their lives. They plot the future together inside Jean’s garage, where relics of her ex-husband (and his locally famous Bruce Springsteen cover band) still linger.
