The story begins with the white-aproned, eighteen-year-old heroine captivated by a white rabbit hopping about in a white topcoat while swinging an oversized pocket watch. He is obviously in a hurry. He keeps announcing that he is "late." "Late for what? "A very important date."
He seems to be on a mission. Alice follows the curious creature, who hops into his hare hole. She stumbles into the hole after him and tumbles down into the underbelly of the underground, far beneath the monuments of D.C.
Alice follows White Rabbit on a journey into a cavernous maze, filled with what looks like high tech catacombs, miles beneath The Capitol and White House.
On her journey through the underground, Alice is confronted by a confounding world of conundrums and contradictions.
She will be heard to lament, "It would be so nice if something made sense for a change."
