In this first episode of Cycle 2, Drs. Swell and Werto receive a special, though last minute, visit from Loria Mushda, Occupant of Oversee House. She brings with her a letter written by a little girl who lives in a distant settlement in Perma. Dr. Swell answers the girl’s question about what happened to the people of Ole-perma (“Did they eat themselves all up?”) with the story of the Fat Fool Annollo.
