They say money can't buy you everything.

They were wrong.

There is a place where you can hire someone to do whatever you need, be whoever you want. They will be programmed with the skills, memories and personality needed to get the job done, after which, they will be wiped clean. No muss, no fuss.

Welcome to the Dollhouse.
