Davis (Jake Gyllenhaal), an effective venture investor, battles in the wake of losing his better half in a heartbreaking fender bender. In spite of weight from his dad in law Phil (Chris Cooper) to force it together, Davis keeps on unwinding. What begins as an objection letter to a candy machine organization transforms into a progression of letters uncovering startling individual affirmations.
Davis’ letters get the consideration of client administration rep Karen (Naomi Watts) and, in the midst of passionate and money related weights of her own, the two shape an impossible association. With the assistance of Karen and her child Chris (Judah Lewis), Davis begins to revamp, starting with the demolition of the life he once knew.
