Plot:
Michael Stone (David Thewlis) is traveling to a reading of his successful book on customer service. Despite his wife and kid at home and his successful career, he feels empty though. Everything seems the same, everyone seems the same. As he arrives in Cincinnati, he debates with himself whether he should contact his ex-girlfriend who lives there. But it’s not until he meets Lisa (Jennifer Jason Leigh) that some excitement seems to come into his life.
