A doctor offers several of his patients the opportunity to participate in some ground-breaking medical clinical trials when he discovers a potential cure for the common cold in the form of some chemical components that when combined replicate the affects of love to a very powerful degree. Due to the highly complex nature of the treatment however, the Doctor rapidly uncovers some unforeseen side effects that can lead to some very undesirable consequences like hallucinogenic manifestations and warped versions of reality and as his patients lives are suddenly plunged into total chaos, the Doctor starts to question if some cures are ever, really, actually meant to be discovered at all. Meanwhile, the participants, all of whom start to have some strange but quite comical side effects and hallucinations, suddenly find themselves in some very unusual predicaments as they start to encounter some very humorous and some very strange love mishaps however as they rapidly discover, the love mishaps that result can end up in very tangled knots of complexity and be just as common and even more problematic than the common cold itself. Written by Jill Thrussell.
