When Jake, a powerful young bull owned by a cantankerous farmer named Bingo Reilly, escapes his pen and runs loose through a quaint Vermont town, the ensuing furor starkly reveals the state's parallel universes. Populating one are the yuppie city folk who moved to the state over the last few decades and now dominate it politically, and in the other are the people who have long lived there, some for many generations. The two universes get along well enough, mainly because they have little to do with one another; one prefers Mozart and golf, the other Emmylou Harris and Friday night Bingo. Nonetheless Jake's dash for freedom raised consciousness on all sides, including Jake's.
