When the dam that keeps the town of Wigfield above water is scheduled to be destroyed, journalist Russell Hokes decides to cover the story, but when he arrives in town, he is shocked by what he finds.
Three humorists (and a designer who does the photographs) team up to produce a comic novel about the town of Wigfield, which is about to be flooded by the government in order to protect the local salmon population. As a P.R. move, the town hires a journalist to tell their story, and the book consists of his interviews with the residents.
