Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: The story appears to be sending a message about saving a lover from addiction (or some similar problem). No matter how powerful you are, you cannot save the person; he/she has to save him/herself. All you can do is assist.

Con: Although it's a fine statement, it doesn't make for much of a story.
