    For 80 years, Merle Hayden devoted his life to crusading for the utopian movement Lawsonomy, started by aviation pioneer Alfred Lawson. Lawsonomy advocates for economic reform and clean living as a means of transforming followers into a “New Species.” But Merle’s high school sweetheart, Betty Kasch, wishes Merle would devote himself to her instead.
