A group of students in New York is about to storm the job market. Competition is cutthroat and expectations run sky-high. For many of them, a small pill seems to be the solution to unlock their full potential; it makes you focussed and creative and you can keep working until the wee hours. The documentary shows, through the eyes of a performance drug dealer, the dark side of the career system in New York: with nocturnal non-stop working sessions, nerve-wracking assessment interviews and monologues full of self-criticism.
