Hearts pounding, thoughts racing, and sleepless nights. Connie and Tristan are falling in love – or are they? Stuck in a clinical trial for an antidepressant, it’s hard to know what is love and what is the drug. 

As the trial’s supervising doctors untangle this relationship, everyone involved has to question what they know.
