What if the people who are ruining this country were your only friends? In Swing State, Bonnie has promised God she’ll save every little soul in her Appalachian Kindergarten class, and if that means risking her job, or happens to trigger her chronic back pain – well, so be it. Neil, the new chiropractor in town, sees things differently. A gay, new-age transplant from Brooklyn, Neil is over the moon when his first treatment turns out to be a miracle cure. But Bonnie is feeling things she hasn’t felt in years and has a different response: “Put me back.” The moment Neil refuses, they’re off…and another epic battle in the Culture Wars is ON. With both of their professional lives now in flux, Neil is determined to help Bonnie recover and return to a normal life, no matter what the cost…
