In the summer of 1925, the struggling town of Dayton, Tennessee, hosted a trial that claimed national headlines and divided the country: the Scopes Monkey Trial, the first major anti-Evolution court case. Nothing to See Here is the story of Frank Robinson, the man who built the trial as a publicity stunt for his town, and May Robinson, his wife who longs to save her family from falling apart in a seemingly Godless town. Of course, notorious reporter H.L. Mencken is there to spin their story—and to uncover what the truth behind the trial really is.
