At a bench by a lake, a young research scientist, Stephanie, encounters Vera, the bird-lady. Since the death of her husband, Vera's life has revolved around the ducks at the lake, and she feeds them every day. But this activity is not as innocent as it seems, and soon Vera and Stephanie are in open conflict over apparently irreconcilable differences. An Agent Of Change is a story about age and youth, the eccentric and the rational, and reconciling the needs of the individual with the needs of society.
