But things become complicated when she befriends a gold farmer, Raymond, a teen in China who is also playing the game, but for him, it’s a job, and his working conditions are unsafe. Anda soon comes to realize that questions of right and wrong are a lot less straightforward when a real person's real livelihood is at stake.
