Welcome to a place so unreal it must be truer than you'll admit. Meet a randomly drawn group of people from across continents and generations, now in a place where time plays tricks, the rules are unclear, and mirrors yield magnificent secrets?if one dares to look. Welcome and watch, as the mighty become humble and an unlikely woman receives a crown. Crackhead Rawanzel Johnson got as high as she could. TV newswoman Karen Dawson ran a red light. Suddenly, they're together, in a cold wilderness, on a deserted two-lane road. Soon there are others-eleven people, fast friends and famous strangers. When the mysterious music stops, when the next mysterious note arrives, when they find a place to rest, after rooftop lust, when Rawanzel finally looks in the mirror, when the feast is prepared and the clock strikes seven, after the bickering, the rediscovery of joys long presumed lost and the fear of losing them again-is this really heaven?"
