Synopsis by Josh Ralske
Mark (Eric Stoltz) is summoned to get feedback on his life from "creative executives," who suggest he end on a bang, not a whimper, and tie up his loose ends. He and Lorna (Felicity Huffman) celebrate their 17th wedding anniversary. At the party, Mark's mother (Iris Quinn) asks him to check in on his younger brother (Peter Flemming), who recently quit his job to sail around the world. Mark catches Lorna in the bathroom doing coke, but she swears it's her first time. While visiting his brother, Mark gets two important phone calls from Lorna. First she calls to tell them their movie is "a go," and later she calls to say, "There's been an accident." Mark returns home to find Steven (William H. Macy looking after Lorna, with Walter (Dyllan Christopher) staying at a friend's. Steven finally tells Mark that the mysterious "Teddy" (Malcolm Scott) is Lorna's coke dealer. Mark gives Lorna an ultimatum. He'll leave her if she doesn't check into rehab. With Lorna away, Mark faces temptation from Annie (Justine Bateman). He reluctantly calls Danni (Kim Dickens), who gives him some important news that could change both of their lives. Uncertain about which direction to go in, Mark kicks out the execs and attacks the film crew before sitting down to write his story.
