New York City
When the stock market crashes in October 1929, the Roaring Twenties come to a screeching halt, and the lives of people everywhere will never be the same.
Dot, the secretary for the VP of the New York Stock Exchange, skips town with a rag-tag band of misfits and embarks on a decades-spanning journey involving financiers, lounge singers, crime novelists, cops, hobos, vigilantes, beekeepers, and even the French. Try as they might, they can’t outrun alternate history in this chaotic reimagining of the Great Crash.
A dark screwball comedy with memorable characters, toe-tapping tunes, and featuring… the total collapse of the US of A!
