After 20 years living and working overseas, I returned to the US and was disgusted by how partisan and polarized the country had become. Civility and compromise are now quaint things of the past, replaced by the rule of extreme.

A satire: When the astronomer Sofia Song catapults from her world to the Blue Planet—a dog-eat-dog world where one tenth of 1% of the people own all the planet’s riches and oligarchs have hijacked democracy—her calamitous journey through space and time ignites a string of unfortunate events leading to the cataclysmic destruction of both worlds. And they didn't even have a budget for all this.
