Summary
On the shores of Puget Sound, a band of virtual reality researchers is building an empty white room that can become a jungle, a painting, or a cathedral. In a war-torn Mediterranean city, an American is held hostage in another empty white room. These two remote places will be linked by the power of the imagination
Summary
Adie Klarpol, a disillusioned artist, and Taimur Martin, an English teacher held hostage by Islamic militants, are brought together in virtual reality, where a shared imagination can join two remote places
