Following a divorce from his wife of many years, David sets out into solitude to begin work on his newest project at the behest of his agency. The story revolves around his unhealthy interest in the characters he meets and his longing to fit in among them. As he becomes further obsessed with his latest work, we watch his dark downward spiral as he struggles to make out the difference between reality and his own distorted view of the world, blurring the lines of obsession, narcissism, and love.
