When Bucket the gnome takes up an offer to stand for the Representative Assembly on behalf of his newly-emancipated people, he expects hard work and civilised debate. Not the bitter enmity of an old flame, nasty innuendoes in the opposition’s newspaper, or threats from organised crime. Certainly not snipers and firebombs.
Along the way, he has to confront his own cultural prejudices when his beloved and her friends raise the question of why female gnomes can’t study engineering.
Can Bucket stand up to the pressure to compromise his ideals in order to get elected?
