Tim is a Canadian assembly line cowboy smarting from having been laid off and replaced by a robotic arm. Mrs. Phipps is an elderly former mathematics professor for whom Tim offers to do odd jobs. And Ginette is Tim’s French-Canadian wife, whose determined self-improvement wins her a way out of the complaints department at Sears and into the higher-paying realm of systems analysis. Three good people whose needs intersect… yet diverge. with complex mathematical equations, Mrs. Phipps has spent a lifetime exploring the universe and the mysterious force (she calls it “goop”) that keeps it all from flying apart. Will these three lives fly apart or find the “goop” that will hold them together?
