Mysterious explosions roil a small Midwest town, unearthing old romances, old crimes and new possibilities.

A gun-waving radical invades the home of a famous philosopher-poet to  force him to support her anarchist group. But when she sees he is paralyzed and speechless from a stroke, she sets out to help him speak again, hiding her intentions. At the same time she attempts to seduce his son, a morose math genius, while battling the opposition of the great man’s bitter wife and his nihilistic, party-girl daughter.   

In a dilapidated, financially struggling Chicago  cafe, a group of oddball baristas including a revolutionary on the run from assassins, a religious romantic who sees Jesus everywhere and a transvestite Ayn Rand fanatic cheat death and find purpose and love over the course of a day filled with disasters.
