In Risk Free, Roscoe and his too-smart-for-his-own-good-homie TJ present for their class project on the “Risk of Existing in a Free World.” The project explores how consciousness affect the way we live, and how actions have consequences that shape our lives. What TJ presents makes his classmates question whether the risk of existing is worth the reward of living. Unfortunately, some details were withheld from Roscoe. This makes Roscoe wonder why he agreed to participate in the first place.
