It's 1922. It's Greenwich Village. The secretary of the Birth Control League, Nora Powers, has short hair. Things are changing for women in America, and Nora sweeps that change straight into the Midwestern home of Seymore Standish, the man she loves, where she faces off with her biggest obstacle: his wife. But when things don't turn out the way anyone has planned, who will continue the fight for change and who will fight to, well, stop that fight?
