Manny blames himself for Val’s death, and it’s eating him alive. So he goes to abSolution™, a company with the technology to edit away a person's guilt through state-of-the-art digitized electro-therapy.
Lying on a cold surgical table with nodes hooked up to his implanted digiChip, Manny relives every last moment of his relationship with Val, as a clinician twists her words and actions to present a version of reality he can live with. But when Manny wakes up, he realizes that there may be more to absolution than he'd originally thought.

Upon realizing that his days on Earth are numbered, Charles Coates Junior vows to record the remarkable story of his life: when he was a child, he was sent on a colonist mission to the recently discovered planet Glennanike, along with several other impoverished youth, in order to find alternate habitation for humanity.
As time passed, however, their new lives crumbled beneath them as they faced adversity, uncovered shocking secrets, and fell victim to their own humanity. While recounting these events and interacting with the memories he had spent his entire life suppressing, Charles finds it harder than he could have ever imagined to face his own past.

Arthur Blair, a quiet, lonely man with crippling social anxiety, lives in a decrepit New York City apartment with a minimum wage job at a frozen yogurt store. His life is made more vivid, however, by the presence of his three imaginary friends: Hector, Zeke, and Samantha. Hector is a failed children's magician, Zeke a sarcastic drug addict, and Samantha a flirtatious librarian.
Arthur's imaginary world is threatened when a new girl, Mia, moves in across the way and they strike up a relationship. As Arthur's friends begin to revolt against the new girl, and control his life in increasingly extreme ways, he must attempt to face the reality of his situation and the source of his loneliness and despair.
