SYNOPSIS: It is July 4, 1776 and while the Founding Fathers in Philadelphia are debating the Declaration of Independence, seven women wait in a nearby tavern for the outcome. Betsy Ross experiments with different colors and patterns for the new flag, Martha Washington and Martha Jefferson complain about the Quaker food, Abigail Adams follows the Congressional debate on her laptop, Mrs. Paul Revere plays solitaire on her iPhone, and Mrs. Ben Franklin runs her Underground Railroad operation through her cell phone. The women discuss the same things being argued at Independence Hall and come to some insightful conclusions of their own. This wacky and anachronistic look at an historic day is as thought-provoking as it is entertaining.
