Hudson Milbank (Matthew Perry) is one half of a successful screenwriting team.  He decides to smoke marijuana for the first time one evening, but consumes a rather large amount.  The next morning Milbank is emotionless and disassociated from his surroundings.

As weeks pass Hudson becomes increasingly depressed and frighteningly indifferent.  Psychiatrists' pills and futile attempts to raise his adrenaline -- such as shoplifting, have no effect.  But when Milbank meets a woman whose insanity rivals his own, the writer slowly begins to perk up.
