"When you have a Bobby Sue to tell you what to do, life gets better!"
Sweep Under Rug envisions a future where struggling families are placed in the "Bobby Sue" program. A "Bobby Sue" is a guardian of sorts, someone who warns against missteps and guides its owners along the "appropriate" path in life.
