Juno, her learning stratum and other friends rebel against the rules of Taris and decide to grow their hair out. This causes outrage throughout Taris.
A meeting including all Tarians takes place and the older adults reveal what Taris was like back then. They had hair, electric scooters, precious pieces of china, photographs, they had everything. But it started getting out of hand, the people of Taris no longer cared for others, all they cared about was their possessions. Then the rules of Taris were formed.
As Taris starts falling apart a ship from the outside comes to rescue them creating excitement and joy among the people of Taris.
