The industrious members of the Budapest Women's Club (pronounced "Bu-DAP-est") come together for an annual tradition: the crafting of the holiday parade float. But under the surface of this pleasant gathering, the women find themselves grappling with sexuality, betrayal, and their own hard and fast notions of right and wrong. In this ode to the complicated undercurrents of Midwestern morality, you'll meet Marty, Luce, Char, Arletta, and Doodee -- five women who face the tests life presents to them with laughter, love, and a lot of fake snow.
