They say politics makes strange bedfellows…
Elated to secure her first paid political staff position, Bijal Rao is eager to focus her efforts on the election of her candidate to U.S. Congress. However, Bijal’s first unforeseen obstacle is her profound and unexpected attraction to their opponent—incumbent Congresswoman Colleen O’Bannon—who is outspoken, charismatic, and openly lesbian.
An even greater hurdle is the subterfuge and pretense that prevades the climate in Washington, D.C., where small missteps are readily painted as major gaffes, and lies are explained away as “in the public’s best interest.” During the heated campaign, both Bijal and Colleen struggle not to cross the lines of propriety—and perhaps more importantly, their party lines.
