Jessica Farris, a budding want-a-be make-up and stylist artist on Broadway, is self-coerced into signing up for a collegiate psychological study for women hosted my Dr. Shields.
The study centers on morality and the choices a person makes is their personal, relational, and business lives.
Jessica soon finds the study’s questions are influencing her decisions that she is making in life.
Although the initial study only involved two hour sessions of answering sometimes very persona questions on a computer, the intrigue and deceit caused by those questions soon begin to weave a web around Jessica’s real life.

Her cousin Vinnie is now the owner of a local deli and he has hired her to be store manager. The pay is actually better than she usually makes as Vinnie’s bounty hunter.
