His second wife Teresa Lazarre has just left him but together with his lawyer and best friend Joe McNamara, they convince Ian to go to rehab. They bring him to the Blackhurst Institute, where Dr. Vernon Renquist submits Ian to an experimental treatment with the support of the nurses Racquel Chambers and the strong James.
