In walks Hector, a very high official, upset because he cannot find the Farm Bill, the huge compendium of policies and programs that controls American agricultural policy. Luana, the clerk, says she does not know where it is. Her boss, Polly, arrives, cheery and chipper. Hector is suspicious of both women. He soon discovers that Luana has hidden the Farm Bill. In so doing, he cuts to the heart of one woman's American revolution."
