(suspenseful music plays) (music intensifies) (bird squawks) (knocks) – Ms. Warren? (birds squawk) (knocks) Ms. Warren? Hi, ma’am. My name is Mia Nichols, and I’m with the Department
of Health and Human Services. – This about Kaylee, isn’t it? – Yes it is. We tried to
reach you by phone or through Kaylee’s school. We just weren’t able to- – Is this about that happy patch? – It’s actually called a
micro doser, Ms. Warren. And yes, it is. – Well we don’t need the
government all up in our business. I know our rights, and they mean that we don’t need nothing to do with that, so. – I’m sorry, Ms. Warren, but
to apply for the exemption, you would’ve had to be
certified religious by a psychiatrist, and I don’t have
any indication of the here. You’re free to do what
you want as an adult, but it’s what’s best for
Kaylee as she grows up. Every child has the right
to be happy, by law. (bells chime) – [Mia] So, you’re in
the fourth grade, Kaylee? How do you like it? You know, I remember when
I was in the fourth grade. – I don’t want a happy patch. My mom said that’s why you’re here. – Its actually called
a micro doser, Kaylee. – Riley’s sister got one, and she said it makes her feel weird. – Sometimes it takes a little
bit for the computer to learn someone’s specific chemistry, but once it does, it really works. It’s really neat, actually. It can monitor all sorts
of levels in your body, and it distributes exactly what you need. – My mom says I don’t have to take it. I’ll run away of you try and put one on. – Do you come out here to play often? – Yeah, pretty often. Like four or five times a week. – Wow. That is a lot. – Yeah, I got a fort out here. – Really? Can I see it? – Okay. This is my fort. I didn’t build it and
I don’t know who did, but I think they moved away or something. And no one else knows about it because nobody else comes out here. – Do you think it would be nice if you had more friends to play with? – I guess. – Well, did you know that
research says it’s easier for happy and regulated children
to make more friends at school? – I don’t want more friends from school. You know, they’re weird and mean. – Oh. Does it make you
sad that they’re mean? – I guess. – [Mia] Well what
happens when you get sad? – I come out here. – Mmhm. To cry? – Sometimes, but when I’m
sad I play with Ramona. – I’m sorry. Who is Ramona? – She’s my friend. – Okay. Does she live in the neighborhood? – She’s a panther or
maybe a leopard. I forget. What’s the one with the spots? – [Mia] I uh.. – She comes when I get sad,
and we talk about her home, which is Toy in no fear city. And then we fly there. Sometimes there’s sky pirates, and me and Ramona fight them
off because they pull up next to us and try and come on board. But then I have a laser
gun, and Ramona tackles them and rips them up with her claws. – Well that doesn’t sound very nice. – Well, they’re not very
nice. They’re pirates. Look! – What is it? – They’re coming! Pirates! Pew pew pew pew. – I don’t- – Don’t just stand there, they’re coming, and I have to shoot. Steer us! Pew pew pew. – Okay captain Kaylee,
turning away from the pirates. – What, no! Turn it towards them. – What? – We have to ram them
and destroy their ship. Pew pew pew – Okay. Here we go. – Hold on. – Pew. Ahhh! We did it! We have to go to the king and tell him that we saved the city. Last time me and Ramona
rescued the king’s prince, the kings son, we were
rewarded a silver medal. – Silver? Why not gold? – Silver is better than gold. Come on let’s go. – Um Kaylee- – But the King wants- – Kaylee. Hold on. Just sit down. Okay. I’m telling you this
for your own good, okay. You see, you’re growing up
and really soon a lot of changes will be happening for you. And, you’re feelings will be
more and more unpredictable, and your family might not
always be able to provide the support that you need. It’s important you regulate yourself. – Regulate myself? – Yes. See, teenage females who
are micro does compliant, are actually 67% more
satisfied with their lives and score better on state exams. – But I don’t need a happy patch. – Well, it’s not just about you. Your mental health affects your family, your school, your country. Since doctors can guarantee
happiness, we made a law so that mental health is taken
care of in all kids, and families like yours. No one’s ever wanted to take it off. You know Kaylee, when
my brother was your age, actually he was just a
little older than you. He was really depressed, and he hurt himself because he didn’t regulate. I think it will be really
good for you, Kaylee. – Why can’t I just stay
here and play with Ramona, and be happy and sad when I want? – Okay. Okay. Okay. But if anyone asks you anything, you tell them that I applied
the micro doser today okay? On your lower back right
here, under your shirt. Okay? (music plays) (music intensifies) (suspenseful music plays)
