This urban drama with comedic moments is set amongst the New York yuppie set and chronicles the relationship woes caused by neurotic filmmaker, musician and video editor Charles. Charles, an acrophobic who cannot leave his apartment without his girlfriend Marcie, is becoming obsessively nervous about the competition in his field and about his domestic situation. To make sense of it all, he decides to film his life. His friends make fun of him, and Marcie is uncomfortable at the prospect of sharing intimate aspects of her life on camera. When Marcie goes to France for a vacation, Charles comes unhinged. Much of the story focuses upon his musings as he tries to deal with her absence and upon the relationship problems of his friends. Upon her late return, Charles accuses her of infidelity and thus destroys the relationship.
