Set in the near-future in the United States, Harmony is about a billionnaire entrepreneur named James who's launching a new tech company called Harmony. Amid rising societal tensions and violence between race, gender, and class, James wants to build a series of new communities that will, as he sees it, create more peace and harmony between communities. Tonight, to plan for next steps, James has gathered a diverse group of the brightest tech minds from his Stanford college days for an unforgettable dinner meeting.
