"Raises questions about politics, morality, and whether humanity can persevere in the face of brutality and war."
"I don't know how long it will be before I stop being Pete's widow and start being that loud mouthed hoor who's disloyal to the cause. When the time comes, will it be you who delivers the headshot, or will you be the one who orders the young 'uns to tar and feather me?"
Eve is a woman abused both physically and mentally by her husband Jimmy, an unseen but ever-present threat to her safety. She lives a quiet life, forced to stay at home, spending her days doing housework, reading magazines, and secretly watching the soap operas her husband hates. Life for all in the household is disrupted by Tony, a contractor hired to build her "Dream Kitchen." Tony's influence on Eve is subversive, and she starts taking small but dangerous chances. Tony has his own agenda, and, fueled by a gambling addiction, he continually challenges the odds as he spins out of control. Will he be Eve's savior, or the catalyst for her destruction?
