Paranoia grips an affluent, young mortgage broker when a bizarre stream of anonymous holiday cards start turning up all over his life and Hollywood home. Controlled and pedantic, Chadh Campbell is pulled undone by these mysterious greetings, forcing him to uncover their source.

As, one by one, he recollects the grievance and potential motivation of a long list of suspects, Chadh must confront the reality of how many people he's harmed in his life and how emotionally detached from those around him he's become. But his list fails to reveal the perpetrator, forcing Chadh to look deeper into his past and consciousness.

As clues continue to mount, denial of the culprit is no longer an option, pushing Chadh to face the consequences of a grave set of decisions he once made. Decisions that ruined countless lives, and continue to ruin them--Such as his own.
