A "story inside a story," in which the first part follows a woman named Susan who receives a book manuscript from her ex-husband, a man whom she left 20 years earlier, asking for her opinion.

It also continues to follow the story of Susan, who finds herself recalling her first marriage and confronting some dark truths about herself.

With the caveat that I've tried to avoid anything obviously bad, this is without doubt the worst film I have seen this year. I simply cannot understand the high praise. The acting is dreadful, the characters detestable without being interesting, the tone unpleasant without being thrilling, the style pretentious without the artistry to back it up. It is preposterously amateurish from start to finish. The woman behind me left during the interminable, badly directed, badly edited, weakly lit scene on the road at night. I yearned to follow her lead but thought I'd hang on and see if it grew on me. Unfortunately the only things that flourished were boredom and indifference. I love a flick that relies unashamedly on its style; unlikable protagonists can be immense fun. This, however, is just a badly written, repugnant dirge. Awful.
