Anne and Tom live together not necessarily by choice. After a terrible war, America passes legislation that states that EVERYONE by the age of thirty must be married and engaged in procreative relationship. Anne, a bachlorette by choice, and Tom, a middle aged homosexual, decide to move in together under the guise of marriage. After Tom's "rehabilitation", the couple decides to make a go as a legitimate couple. Failing and building resentment for their situation, they go after the law's creator.
