Echo is an 'active' one of several volunteers who work at the Dollhouse, a secret and illegal international organization that rents out programed people for their high-paying clients needs. Paul Ballard is an ambitious FBI agent whom relentlessly seeks out the existence of the Dollhouse despite interference from his co-workers and superiors that the place does not exist. Adelle DeWitt, the CEO of the L.A. branch of the Dollhouse, becomes concerned that Agent Ballard is onto them when she suspects that someone is helping him, so she sends out Echo in other one of her programed states to spy and eventually kill the persistent agent, despite protests from Echo's handler, Boyd, who wants to follow guidelines the legal way.

The world is a very simple place... at first. Then, as we grow up, it grows around us, a dense thicket of complication and disappointment. Unbearable for some. And even for the luckiest of us, still sometimes more than we can handle. Less than we'd hoped.
