Karma can be a beautiful maiden or a bitch... Lemurians, Atlanteans... The beautiful Catharsians share the planet with another race, the Uglies. Being ugly is considered a contagious disease, and the Uglies are herded into a reservation, where they live out their drudgery behind an electric fence...until the ultimate disaster strikes. Will it bring to light everyone's true beauty and ugliness?
