To many, the world of the future has become a utopia. There is peace and happiness everywhere. Many even believe that magic has returned to the world. There is no war, there is no anger, fighting is unheard of, and no one disagrees. No one is harmed and almost all illness has been eliminated. But there is a new disease, known only as The Malady, a disease that slowly paralyzes the body and forces the victim to live the remainder of life in a magical, human-like construct known as a doll.

For two students with the malady, the world is not so perfect. There is no pain, there are no accidents, and there is nothing to cause unhappiness, but it seems that anything that could cause any kind of accident is forbidden. Life is dull and childish. The two question the practices of society and the laws of the Council that created it, causing unrest and risking reconditioning or elimination. But their minds cannot stop searching for answers to forbidden questions. They must learn what happened to society, what was the true past of the world, and why they keep hearing lies in this perfect society of truth. As they search for the answer to the most forbidden question, the two learn more about their world, life, happiness, friendship, and true freedom, as well as the cost of keeping it.
