It's a mixed bag really, a hodgepodge, a mostly true story based on Elizabeth Hamilton's fictional life about a whole slew of family trials and tribulations that did in fact happen but maybe not exactly as Elizabeth claims.
Elizabeth is out to settle some scores. Three scores in particular.
One against the US military who she holds responsible for the loss of her sister Sarah's right leg, blown off when an IED blew up her Marine Corps Humvee while patrolling the streets of Baghdad.
One against Olympic downhill ski champion Johnny Armour who she holds responsible for beating and abusing her twin sister, Katherine. The list of infractions against Johnny includes swollen bruises on Katherine's face, broken ribs in her chest, fractured bones in her arm, and years of emotional cruelty that demand a reckoning.
And finally one against wealthy Internet Entrepreneur Bob the Smut King Blackwood who Elizabeth holds responsible for destroying her beloved father's reputation out of pettiness, jealousy, and envy.
Elizabeth Hamilton is a young woman on the warpath. She's out to demand an accounting and exact revenge. Women, according to Elizabeth's version of events, have been dealt a raw deal since the Mayflower anchored off Plymouth Rock. And now she's out to right a few wrongs.
A Brief History of Women in America is her story. In her words. And actions. Told in real time as she first assaults the Pentagon, then hurtles west in her Civic for a confrontation with Johnny Armour in his Sun Valley, Idaho mansion. And finally back in her hometown in rural Connecticut where she breaks into Bob Blackwood's restored New England farmhouse and takes him hostage at gunpoint.
Quite a ride, Ms. Hamilton is on. No telling how it will all turn out. We can only hope there will be a happy ending. For Elizabeth. And for the women of America.
