The story of Tim Madden, an unsuccessful writer addicted to bourbon, cigarettes, and careless women. He wakes one morning remembering nothing of the prior night. His Porsche is soaked with blood and in a secluded corner in nearby woods he finds a severed blonde head. Is he a murderer? Can he reconstruct the missing hours of that terrible evening.
