Jake Gyllenhaal plays Davis Mitchell, a successful investment banker, who struggles after losing his wife in a tragic car crash. Despite pressure from his father in law Phil to pull it together, Davis continues to unravel. What starts as a complaint letter to a vending machine company turns into a series of letters revealing startling personal admissions. Davis’ letters catch the attention of customer service rep Karen, an unconventional pot-smoking single mother, and amidst emotional and financial burdens of her own, the two form an unlikely connection. With the help of Karen and her son Chris, Davis starts to rebuild, beginning with the demolition of the life he once knew.
