An encounter with a fortune-teller leads businessman Edmond (William H. Macy) to confront the emptiness of his life and marriage. Appalled, he flees into the vortex of the city's underbelly, plummeting into a free-fall he mistakes for liberation. To Edmond's surprise, it's dark outside: Hookers charge, pimps are violent and the guy on the corner is a conman. Edmond is robbed, beaten and left bewildered. But there's a strange comfort at the bottom. Exhilarated by a random act of violence, Edmond picks up a waitress, Glenna (Julia Stiles), but their riotous sex play leads first to conflict and then to murder. With nothing to lose but his liberty, Edmond spirals further out of control, towards prison, disintegration and a very brutal redemption.
