Suffering from writer's block, novelist Marian Walker (Carrie Preston) turns to her mentor and ex-lover, Jackson (Austin Pendleton). But his advice unexpectedly leads one of her characters to escape from the novel and stir up the unresolved issues in her life. A visually striking film festival favorite, this lyrical drama explores the intersection of life and fiction, the links between past and present, and the meaning of life, death and love.
