A young woman struggles against cynicism and despair as she makes her way through a world wracked by dehumanizing poverty, institutional oppression, and bureaucratic indifference. Originally written during the Great Depression as a surreal and subversive commentary on the rising tide of European fascism, this new radio-play adaptation reframes the story amidst the American backdrop of the 1932 Bonus Army marches on Washington and the violence that ensued.
