In the short film Dragon Quest, Benjamin goes through a few different counsellors in order to find a solution for his bout of anxiety and depressive episodes. He fails to find the right one. With each failed attempt, he puts on more metaphorical armour on himself as a defense mechanism, eventually hindering his everyday life. But in the end he does find his counsellor, and learns that with the right help, he can obtain the right tools he needs to vanquish his draconic issues.
