Old fashioned David does not like change or confrontation.

Stuck in a loveless, hateful, marriage to a domineering, controlling, wife, David yearns to be free and happy.

His therapist suggested opening up to a new world of technology. In fact, he can start slow by, for example, replacing his mercury thermostat with a digital version.

David did that, but, what should he do with that vial of mercury?

Everyone deserves to be happy.

David is.
