She buys a rundown cottage in New London, Connecticut, refurbishes it with her bare hands, paints it pink, meets a great guy (Callum Keith Rennie), and exhales.

Then she discovers powerful politicians are bent on bulldozing her blue-collar neighborhood to make way for condos and office buildings designed to benefit the new corporate headquarters of the pharmaceutical giant, Pfizer.

The Supreme Court decision galvanized Libertarians from around the country and here in Florida to enact stronger eminent domain laws. Florida became one of the first states to enact strong property rights protections against such eminent domain abuses by state and local governments. Libertarians from around the State of Florida caused the Florida legislature to add Article X, Section 6c which prohibits the conveyance of property taken by eminent domain to another person or private entity without 3/5ths approval of both houses of the Florida legislature.
