The wise man can pick up a grain of sand and envision a whole universe. But the stupid man will just lay down on some seaweed and roll around in it until he's completely draped in it. Then he'll stand up and go hey, I'm Vine Man.

Synopsis:
"There's a lot of space out there. Those stars may be as big as this ship,"said Joe.

Imagine a group of human beings to whom the only world they know is a gigantic spaceship - so large and so ingeniously constructed that it has supported thousands of people for centuries. Yet they live subject to all the old emotions - victims of conflict and suspense arising from rebellions and killings in their midst.
