A conservative intellectual wound a little tight, a graduate student that likes a good fight, a beer drinking, polka dancing half-breed, and a cross dressing street-smart queen meet in a bar somewhere in South Texas. Between the liquor and the line dancing, what ensues is a raucous rapid-fire theoretical showdown. The true stories of Chipita and Lucy, two women hung for murder, take centerstage in this gender bending performance that indeed proves - Texas really is a whole ‘nother country, ya’ll.
