Noah Arkwright is a cult director in the indie film world and his life is on a crash course, with Noah steering himself towards his own destruction. His life is one of success and excess. Everything--alcohol, drugs, girls, fame--that Noah can get his hands on he wolfs down with an insatiable hunger. He is running towards a brick wall--alcoholism and drug addiction have him firmly in their grasp--but Noah has no interest in acknowledging either until Kirstin, a young alcoholic who has 'seen the light', manages to convince Noah that he is heading for destruction and sets him on the path to reclaim himself. With the help of his best friend Ray, Noah attempts to right his ship, and when fate sends him a guardian angel in the shape of cellist Clare Mathesson, Noah tries even harder to shift his focus from self-abuse to self-preservation--and on the road to selflessness. However, this is when Mother Nature deals him the cruelest blow of all.
