Roman is a screenwriter teetering on the edge of schlock, blocked by the mediocrity of his newest screenplay. His heroine, “Marianne,” a successful and ambitious woman who has built a career in the male-dominated world of finance, is the root of his dilemma. Alas, Roman has no idea who this woman is. When his mentor gives him sage advice, “Start out with a character, and you’ll find you created a type; start out with a type, and you’ll find you created nothing,"Roman sets out to find a "real life” Marianne. His quest leads him to Gloria. He becomes obsessed with her, invading her private life, even her home, and eventually getting trapped in her closet when she arrives home unexpectedly. The night that ensues changes his perceptions forever.
