His best attempt at a novel is declined by his publishing house leaving Rory and wife Dora (Zoe Saldana) discouraged and broke. Everything changes however when Rory stumbles upon an old satchel Zoe purchased for him on their Paris honeymoon and the amazing manuscript hidden inside.

Rory takes that manuscript, types it into his computer then presents it as his own. It becomes an instant hit and rockets him to stardom but he soon meets an Old Man in Central Park (Jeremy Irons) who forces him to reflect long and hard about the unethical choice he made. Dennis Quaid, Olivia Munn and Ben Barnes all co-star in the film which weaves between three separate realities with painful similarities.
