Paul Brawley is an aimless PhD candidate at Yale who's just moved in with his girlfriend and has his sights set on completing his dissertation. There’s just one snag: as Paul is unpacking his belongings, he discovers that he has left a book behind. A seemingly inconsequential object, but one Paul feels is of great importance to his dissertation and, therefore, to his future. He will have to retrieve it from his former roommate – the obstinate, casually sinister Nancy. Paul contacts Nancy, but she will not cooperate.  What should be the simplest of errands becomes intolerably difficult. Unable to accept his “defeat” at Nancy’s hands, Paul rushes headlong into a thresher of emotional unrest and physical punishment. His life will get much, much worse before it gets better.
