Labor rights are not very developed in the United States, so many workers do not have insurance. This is what happens to a waitress, who gets the impact of a nail on her head.
He finds himself without any protection, so he decides he has to do something. Thus begins a crusade against the government of Washington, becoming the visible head or mouthpiece of those uninsured who have had rare accidents like hers.
In Washington there are people of all types and this waitress is going to come with a little recommend. It is a congressman without too many scruples, who will try to use the waitress for political purposes.
What no one knows is that little by little they will be attracted to each other, which in the end may lead to a serious and stable relationship in time.
