A Thing of Beauty
The earth is being sucked into a giant black hole, and everyone will be stuck in a single, endless moment for the rest of time. Carson is hired by PharmaNOW to create a drug that manufactures everlasting beauty, the one “sure” way to insure that everyone’s eternal moment will be happy. She must tackle the myth behind the meaning of beauty itself. As the world crashes to an end, we are left with the question: Can there be happiness without beauty?
