She had reasons to tiptoe toward marriage; he gave her reasons to run
Adam Donatello and Nina Morales share an immediate and powerful attraction, and their future together seems assured. But love is difficult enough without adding complications - real or imagined - to the mix. Nina sees life as a thousand shades of gray, while Adam tends toward black-and-white. He wants to move fast; she needs time. Nina sees her past liaisons with women as immaterial to their relationship, while her disclosure drives Adam to a state of irrational jealousy. He doesn't know how he could compete with a woman, and his suspicions - which Nina views as hypocritical- lead them both to make decisions they may live to regret.

If Steve Jobs designed a utopian community, had it filtered by Lewis Black and painted by Picasso, it would look like Walden 3.0. Jacob is a young reporter who's been asked to tell the story of Walden 3.0, a secretive community with its own culture, educational and healthcare systems, religious beliefs, and economic structure. Jacob's head swirls with revelations that the monogamy of the "outside world" has been replaced with serial marriage; parenting is a communal responsibility; death panels are a reality; and everyone gets to be god for a day. Torn from today's headlines, Walden 3.0 offers a worldview that will alternately delight and dismay everyone.
