After losing his license to practice, disgraced psychologist Dr. Victor Callahan aka “Dr. V.” lapses into the murk of clinical depression. That might have been the end of him had his supportive wife Ann not encouraged him to do something, anything, to get out of the house. The good Doctor indulges his wife by embarking on a fishing trip at a nearby lake where he meets Nikita Vankin an autistic savant who is addicted to personality-altering popsicles laced with psychoactive chemicals. Nikita persuades the reluctant doctor to reveal the three wishes that he most hopes will come true. Serving as Nikita’s mentor, Doctor V. lays the groundwork for his new protégé to unveil Triage, a previously undreamt of neuropsychological cerebral imaging process that has the power to change the world as we know it, for better or for worse.
It will be up to Dr. V. and Nikita to rise to the challenge of leveraging their own expertise to realize the only acceptable outcome that they can live with; he and Nikita are thrust into the future by harnessing the powers of Triage to enter the true final frontier, the human psyche itself, the realm where dreams come true and some wishes are doomed to fail. Coming to the aid of others, including a suicidal adolescent, a pregnant high school student, a child sexual predator and a rogue Gulf War veteran driven to the edge by the demons of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, patients whose problems are ripped from the headlines of contemporary life in a beleaguered world, we join Dr. V. and Nikita as they take on matters that are literally a matter of life and death and inextricably intertwined with the redemptive powers of love and forgiveness.
