Life in the suburbs can be predictable and regimented. People strive to live up to expectations. Certain annoyances are routinely overlooked. Why bother getting emotional, or rock the boat? It just serves to make waves.
Suddenly all normalcy flies out the window when both husband and wife are diagnosed with the same mysterious condition. A wheel in the liver? But wait! There’s more! More wheels that is. Bizarre. Is this a condition to worry about? What is the health risk?
As their lives are turned upside down, Mr and Mrs Typical Suburbanites try to come to grips in their secret that makes them different from all the other cookie cutter people in their neighborhood, and in their circle of friends. As the wheels multiply, evidence of cogs and gears begin to show up. Wow, I may be mistaken, but it looks like being such stiff and regimented folk as they are, have caused them to slowly become automatons.
Although my retrobots may not see anything wrong in the situation, is there any hope for our married couple? As stress kicks in, emotions begin to run high. What do you think? Will the release of pent up emotions be the cure they are seeking?
The doctor gets a final surprise of his own during a checkup of the couple.
