Synopsis: Margaret is home in DC for the holiday. At an old high school party, she’s secretly hurt to see some of her best friends conforming to the bourgeoisie and goes on a bender. Later that night, at a drug dealers’ on the outskirts of town, she witnesses what looks like the pieces of a botched kidnapping.


Over the next few days, rather than deal with the banality of her own life, Margaret sleuth’s her way across town. She gets in over her head, shocker. Traversing the weird mixed culture of our nation’s capital, though, she gets some perspective.
