When a chess player is fatally shot in New York’s Union Square, he is transferred to the planet of Little Life, a place Eight times larger than Earth, where he gets, like everyone there, ten more years to live. His body transforms again at the age of twenty, but the memory impressions of his previous life remain intact. Soon, the state of this new world turns out to be even more instable.
