Dynasty Handbag tries to survive in the family home, but as disaster strikes again and again, there is nowhere left to hide.  To whence should she escape? Through the upstairs! To the neighbor, to the closet, to poetry, to fame, to the city, the forest, where shall she gain back her power? Through violence, make-believe, cigarettes, fantasy...where!!!!??? All of the above.
