The death of a beloved pet sends the once-happy relationship of a New York couple spiraling into disaster in this black comedy that finds Cop Land and Rounders producer Christopher Goode stepping into the director's chair. Tom and Perri seem to have the perfect relationship, but their love sours when Tom's pet golden retriever is run over by a car and Tom blames Perri for the dog's sudden death. As Tom's obsession with finding the driver of the car becomes all-consuming, Perri's inability to understand her boyfriend's vengeful mindset finds the pair slowly drifting apart. When Tom disappears, Perri finds solace in the arms of a college student whose intentions may be less than honorable.
