An uproarious farce about what Shepard calls "the current American political dilemma" Frank and Emma are a quiet, respectable couple who raise cows on their Wisconsin farm. Soon after they agree to put up Frank's old friend Haynes, who is fleeing from a secret government project involving plutonium, they are
visited by Welch, a government bureaucrat. His aggressive patriotism puts Frank, Emma, and Haynes on the defensive, transforming their heartland American household.
