My love affair with the song "Peace," which was co-written by Beth Nielsen Chapman and Michael McDonald (of Doobie Brothers fame), began with a trip to Chattanooga, TN.

What do you get when you cross Divergent, I Am Legend, I Robot, Hunger Games, and The Truman Show, with maybe a touch of The Matrix thrown in? You get what Robert Kouba and Sebastian Cepeda must have been attempting in the new release movie Singularity—with zero success.
