The only salvation is an experimental treatment—a virtual game called Moderation Online, where patients live in a fantasy kingdom with vegetable characters that subconsciously teach humans how to make better choices in life.

But he questions everything when he discovers that maybe the vegetables aren’t the bad guys after all.
