A successful investment banker goes into depression after his wife dies in a tragic car crash. Will a chance connection with a customer service representative, who is also a single mother give him a second chance at life?
Evocative and eloquent, this multi-layered drama revolves around Davis (Jake Gyllenhaal), a successful investment banker, who struggles after losing his wife in a tragic car crash. Despite pressure from his father-in-law, Phil (Chris Cooper), to pull it together, Davis continues to unravel.
What starts as a complaint letter to a vending machine company turns into a series of letters revealing startling personal admissions. Davis' letters catch the attention of customer service representative, Karen (Naomi Watts), and, amidst emotional and financial burdens of her own, the two form an unlikely connection. With the help of Karen and her son Chris (Judah Lewis), Davis starts to rebuild, beginning with the demolition of the life he once knew.
