Ainesh learns cushion counselling from his eccentric lecturer Sean. After Emma Jane’s flirtation makes him run for the safety of his cinema books, Stillman hassles him about getting a job. Ainesh starts to realise the course might be more than he bargained for when a puppet role-play goes out of control. Ainesh goes house hunting, barely resisting the advances of an older lady, and just avoiding baptism by an over-enthusiastic priest. A mysterious dog saves the day. Dragged clubbing by his classmate Sally, Ainesh runs into Emma Jane, but before he can romance her she meets his much cooler motorbike-riding cousin, Krishna.
Episode 1 of the brand new series from Dead Medium Productions and Dublin City FM. First broadcast 7th May, 2014.
Ainesh Sharma is sacked from his minimum wage job for being a smart aleck, and is placed by the social welfare department in a course called ‘Choosing Therapy’ – a radical form of psychotherapy which teaches that everything in life is our choice. The course proves to be quite the indoctrination. Ainesh is befriended by two mysterious classmates, Stillman and Emma Jane.
