Full Plot

Six is forced into attending a matchmaking service, the matchmaker, 1891, who appears unwanted on his television screen. He is matched with a blind woman named 4-15, who looks exactly like Lucy with whom Six had a sexual liaison in New York. Six is convinced that she is indeed Lucy, although 4-15 appears not to know anything about life outside of The Village. Both Two and 11-12 ask 313 for assistance on specific matters. With Two and 313, she knows that he is aware that she is a dreamer, the reason why she feels she needs to help him. But she still has to decide if what he asks her to do is worth her long term happiness. Meanwhile, all the talk around The Village centers on the mysterious holes that have been appearing in The Village, which Two dismisses as weather related anomalies. To combat these, pigs are distributed to residents, as swine breath is deemed to be a atmosphere stabilizer. One of those holes is in 147 and 21-16's backyard. A tragedy occurs in their family because of the hole. Huggo Number 2 is the latest client for a love matching service which will find the perfect mate for you. He's really not interested until he sees the woman they want to match him with: Number 4-15, who is the spitting image of Lucy, the woman he met in New York City. 4-15 is blind but clearly they are attracted to one another. Number 2 eventually explains why. As well, a series of holes begin to appear around the Village with no explanation. They appear to be bottomless pits from which no one could ever emerge and it all leads to a tragic loss for Number 147, the taxi driver. 313 has mixed feelings about their relationship and takes action. garykmcd Plot not found
