Ida and Vivian start a town called Progress. Ida is the mayor and Vivian is in charge of populating the town. When Slim and Weed arrive looking for work and a place to fit in, they slowly take over the town while Ida is immobilized by an injury. Weed lifts heavy things and tends to Ida, while Slim finds enterprising ways to pump water and start a business with Vivian. The whole thing nearly falls apart until a bear, a baby, empanadas, a blue dress, and water collected from fog and morning dew bring them back together.
