He longs to fulfill his dream of being truly free to enjoy contact with others without fear. However, to do this, he must return to his hometown and relive the agonizing experiences that beat him down in the first place. He must do the very things he ran away from, such as declare a pre-adolescent infatuation and confront the people who tormented and humiliated him. He then quits his job as a diamond dealer and embarks on a new, transformational mission, leaving his worried family behind.
