Desideratum - "something desired as essential" Essential - "extremely important and necessary;" "very basic;" "of the essence" Essence - "the basic nature of a thing;" "the quality or qualities that make a thing what it is" Constance, 22, and Tom, 34, finds themselves debating how to fill in the blanks of each of these words, ones always thrown around but rarely deeply examined. Do they follow the rules of society, whatever it changes and conforms to be? How are their hearts trained and how will they continue to mold them? What is the nature of humans? Are they exempt from human nature, or do they find another way to manifest it? The student and her professor quickly learn that you are always free to choose, but you are never free from the consequences of your choice.
