Synopsis

A young boy is critically ill and needs an operation, but he doesn’t seem to care what happens to him. One of the doctor’s approach the boy’s sister about this, but she tells him that the boy admires the JSA and that a visit by them may cheer him up. Local TV stations then put the story all over the airwaves and the members decide to go to the hospital and perform for the youngster, hoping that will strengthen him enough to endure an operation. He perks up, but sinks back into a dreamworld. Wonder Woman decides to use her Magic Sphere and inject the members into his dreams in order to save him.
