A husband goes missing. His wife finds red milk at her front door. Coincidence? Not in Mount Carmel, CA - Richard Nixons second favorite beach town. Its 1950, early Fall. Communists could be anywhere, and its up to Andy Landers, the peachy-keen milkman, to solve the case and clear his familys name. But a disaffected housewife named Meredith Mutch has a hunch this all runs deeper than discolored dairy, and shes got her eyes on Tom Kind, a traveling salesman, whos peddling Cold War paranoia alongside his newest product - the modern refrigerator Red Milk is an off-beat noir about identity, group-think, and the things that turn sour out in the sun.
