Since time immemorial, the town of Ellerbeck has been in the firm grip of a long-established clan of local politicians. No one objects, until the local officials want to build a new high-tech pigsty.

She now has to focus her idealism on the construction of industrial parks and such. Her experiences as a kindergarten teacher help her more than she could imagine!
