Meet the Haralsons—retired, eccentric, always discontented. Margarita, the post-menopausal narrator, wants a baby, while her heroic husband Alex is obsessed with finding the missing 11th commandment. Perhaps conjured from their obsessions, arrives John Chapman, a Max Headroom type cyborg from the distant future, begging the Haralsons to save his race of Jewish robots from extinction. The result is a mad escapade through time and space to Airets, Earth’s mirror planet. Prepare for the many antics of the libidinous Margarita as she does battle with gossips, hypocrites and her double-dealing electronic progeny.
