New York City. While on his way home one evening, Walter Zarrow (Sam Waterson), a popular Columbia University philosophy professor, is violently attacked on the street. The film traces the domino effect of events that led up to this seemingly senseless assault. Along the way, hidden connections between a seemingly disparate group of people - including a self-destructive student (Kristen Stewart), a hard-drinking suburban housewife (Gretchen Mol), and a desperate junkie (K. Todd Freeman) - emerge, forming a complex, engrossing mosaic of lost souls united by tragedy.
