Fanged Tuffaron, known as the Mad Genie, and Georgette the sanguine, white angel were having a heated argument concerning the nature of the human race. Tuffaron, asserted that humans derive intense enjoyment from suffering while Georgie claims that humans are just staved for comfort and happiness and if granted these for forty-eight hours they would be content. A wager ensues where the Angel sets out to prove herself right and the Mad Genie wrong.
Chosen for the test is Meredith Smith, a little worn out sixty-five year old who lives alone with barely enough money to survive. Having never loved or been loved and currently feeling she has lived a miserable, useless life, she embraces the chance to be young again, dance and find love and happiness—even if it is only for forty-eight hours.
Will the two wonderful days of youth, love and infinite promise make up for the settlement price—and who of the immortals will win the wager?
