In 1880, Osawkie, Kansas is feuding with rival town Mandaroon over which will be county seat, keeping the town’s men away from home most of the time. The last straw is when Matt Davis feels compelled to go on a new foray on his wedding night; his bride Liza (just call her Lysistrata) takes teacher Cassie’s advice and organizes a marital strike to make the men-folk stop their nonsense.
