Romance in the age of prescription drugs...

Meena Pierotti's job is making her unhappy. Luckily, there's a pill for that. 

Well, not yet. But Meena has joined the clinical trial for a new drug targeting workplace depression. The trial gets messy, however, when she falls in love with her doctor, who himself is trying to enroll into a drug trial targeting heartbreak.
