A group of people enrol in a groundbreaking course run by a pioneering company called Life Services Inc. that teaches them to be 'Value Added Friends' to those they are hired to befriend, or simply to existing friends that are in their current lives and social circles. Whilst the attendees attempt to discover if what they have learnt can truly make their friendships worth their weight in gold however, they start to truly realise what a messy minefield friendship actually can be and how easily they can actually be made redundant as the program brings out the best and the worst in its participants.

A new coaching service run by Life Services Inc. trains and teaches people how to be good 'value added friends' and the 'perfect friend' to those they are hired to befriend, or simply to those existing friends they already have in their current life and social circles. The pioneering company whose goal is to 'optimise the quality of their client's life' manages to implement an intensive training program they have developed which is not only physical and psychological but also involves some technological mind enhancements as they seek to establish, whether or not the value of friendship can actually be measured and whether or not a 'value added friend' truly can be worth their weight in gold. Due to the nature of human beings and their complicated emotional entanglements however, the experimental, profit generating work rapidly becomes a messy minefield as it brings out the best and worst in the program's participants.
