Synopsis by Eleanor Mannikka
This routine drama is about Leopold (Peter Faber) who as "Paul Chevrolet" writes detective fiction but whose real goal is to become an acclaimed prose stylist. Leopold is divorced with one teenage daughter. He has a tendency to bed down attractive women, even if one happens to be the girlfriend of his best friend -- or the daughter of his editor. He soon finds his back up against the wall when his attempt at a literary novel is cursorily dismissed, and tragedy strikes in his own back yard.
