Michael Stone (David Thewlis), husband, father and respected author of How May I Help You Then? is a man crippled by the mundanity of his life. On a business trip to Cincinnati, where he’s scheduled to speak at a convention of customer service professionals, Michael checks into the Fregoli Hotel and meets Lisa Hessleman (Jennifer Jason Leigh), a socially awkward sales rep from Akron who may or may not be the love of his life. From Charlie Kaufman (writer, Being John Malkovich, Adaptation, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, director, Synecdoche, New York), and Duke Johnson comes a darkly comedic and surreal stop-motion journey into the mind of a man whose dark night of the soul becomes a Kafkaesque - make that Kaufmanesque - nightmare.
