Abstract:

Two struggling actors, Nick and Luella, are caught up in a phony time-travel scam concocted to separate an old man named James Dumfries from his money. But Dumfries is no ordinary senior citizen. He is the creator of workware, a technology that has changed the world by enabling workers to manage the most tiresome tasks without complaint, training or memory. What machines had once done, man can do it again, but at the price of his humanity. Dumfries never intended his invention to be used in this way and he wants to change the past through Nick.
