Pita (20s) is panicking while her brother ARVIN (20s) is experiencing a drug withdrawal crash. As Arvin crashes the lights in the room begin to flicker from red, blue and green. Wanting to ease her brother’s pain, Pita decides to ask SOUZA (20s), Arvin’s drug dealer, to come and give Arvin a shot of a drug, which allows him to enter a Cyber Hi.
Not long after Pita’s call, Souza has arrives and administers the drug to Arvin, which enables Arvin to enter a Euphoric state. Once Arvin has stabilized, Souza informs Pita that if Arvin crashes again and receives another shot of drug he will die. Souza then tries to give Pita a few syringes full of the drug, so that when the time comes and Arvin crashes, she will be able to end Arvin’s misery by allowing him to overdose on the drug. Not wanting Arvin to die, Pita refuses Souza’s drug gifts.
A few days passes, and Arvin crashes again. Upon seeing that Arvin is in so much pain, Pita decides that it is only right that she allows Arvin to die, and so she decides to go to Souza’s house and ask him for the drugs. Once Pita has received the drug Pita returns
home, and administers the drug to Arvin, which allows him to die in peace instead of pain.
