When he returns he is so horrified at the plans of McDonald’s to commission the ruthless and feared Monte Feltro to destroy the health food chain known as Palace Reno that he abandons his career plans with the fast food giant.Resolved to save Palace Reno, he meets Beatrice and together they embark upon an adventure that takes them to a home for autistic children, where they see society as these children see it, where society reveals its true self in all its savagery as only the autistic can ever know behind closed doors where all constraints of the world watching are taken away.Monte Feltro teams up with chief prosecutor, Rupert G. Airy, to put Don, Beatrice, and even the autistic children on a trial which claims that Palace Reno is an international organized crime child pornography ring. Dr. Burgenheim, who flunked the elective course on autism in psychiatry school, will give expert testimony against the children. If they succeed, the home will be closed, the children will be placed in the Judge Rothenberg Center and Palace Reno will be shut down forever.
