TV writer/producer Brian (a suitably hangdog Rea) is suffering from creative burnout and depression. His agent, Danny (Arnold), has just landed Brian a new job writing a TV series that he's dreading. His weekly poker buddies (and fellow writers) offer possible scenarios, amidst their backstabbing, but Brian may have reignited his creative spark after witnessing a romantic encounter between two silhouetted figures in a hotel window. He thinks the woman may be Georgia (Douglas), whom he meets in a bar, and Brian wants her story--at practically any price.
