On a stormy night, a mysterious cloaked figure appears in Benjamin Franklin's print shop to insist Ben print a letter "to save the country." The fun and confusion build until the visitor produces a basket of chocolates and casts off her disguise to reveal herself as Martha Washington. Wild eyed Martha plies the wary Ben with promises and peanut brittle to persuade him to publish her note in which she sees a Tory behind every tree. Ben tries to calm Martha, but she becomes a whirlwind of confusion, when George Washington himself angrily arrives to drag Martha back to Mount Vernon. A mad historical romp which shows how history can repeat itself.
