Synopsis by Dan Pavlides
When a disillusioned journalist has a nervous breakdown, he loses his family and his vocation as he tries to come to grips with his dilemma. His wife leaves him because he no longer has the idealistic fervor she feels he once possessed. He feels increasingly alienated from the fast-growing, mechanical society as he mourns the loss of the importance of people as individuals. He slowly becomes bitter, cynical and tries to forget his troubles in a series of tawdry affairs with bawdy women.
