The plot sounds pretty intense and gritty. Two convicts, who want to reduce their respective prison sentence, volunteers as medical subjects for a radical new drug that can potentially alter one’s emotions. However, one begins to face a massive change in their ability to love, questioning whether his emotions are real or just a result of a drug-induced haze.
