Jonathan Breech (Cillian Murphy) was nineteen-years old when his father succumbed to death due to alcoholism.  His response was suicidal, prompting a cocaine binge and high-speed joyride that ended at the bottom of a cliff; an urn containing his father's ashes rode shotgun with grim symbolism.

 

Miraculously, Breech survives the tumble and is given two options: a lengthy jail sentence, or an undetermined stay in the psychiatric ward.  Jonathan chooses the latter, where he meets Rachel (Tricia Vessey) and Toby (Jonathan Jackson), two individuals who will inadvertently change his life.
