The Kuto’s life was filled with grief. His wife and child had died in a car accident, and he was left alone in the world. He turned to alcohol to numb the pain, and it soon took over his life. He lost his job, his home, and everything else that mattered to him. Finally, he hit rock bottom when he was arrested for drunk driving.
In desperation, Kuto agreed to participate in a clinical trial for a new antidepressant medication. The trial required him to take the medication for eight weeks and then report back on how it made him feel. At first, Kuto didn’t notice any difference; but after a few weeks passed, he began to feel better . . . happier even. He started going out more often, socializing with friends again . . until one day something happened that changed everything: while out on a bike ride, Kuto spotted his wife and child walking down the street arm-in-arm with another man. In an instant, all of the happiness that had been building up inside of him came crashing down; replaced by an all-consuming rage.”
