Alan loves his new job. It’s in his field, he is paid well, and he works in a gorgeous building with a girl he has had a crush on since high school, Michelle.

When Alan learns that she is working with a small group to go against the big pharmaceutical company because of a specific drug, Alan is intrigued. For this reason (and a very large paycheck), Alan takes a job offer from Michelle’s boss. Not only does he get paid well, he also gets to work with Michelle and help save the world from a dangerous drug. The more Alan uncovers, though, the more questions he has about what’s going on and how much time he has.
