Set in the 1980s, Bread and Circuses follows the Novak family as they become contestants on a television quiz show. The mother and daughter are thrilled to be part of the show while the father and son are skeptical about the experience. As the game gets underway, the family gets caught up in all sorts of strange challenges that involve dressing up as chickens and a run-in with the police. Their host takes them on a journey that will strengthen the bonds between them in very idiosyncratic and entertaining ways.
