It’s 1989, and young Heidi is trying to earn enough money to go to college by entering speech competitions about the U.S. Constitution in American Legion halls all across the country. When she loses the first round to Becky Dobbins because her speech isn’t personal enough, she decides to go deep. Starting with her great-great-grandmother, a mail-order bride who died of “melancholia,” she pries into the effects of a single sentence of the Ninth Amendment on generations of American women and men. Before the night is over, she’s engaged in a fierce, impromptu debate with a local teen over the future of our inalienable rights.
