An American writer visits the ancient Portuguese town
of Guimar„es for a lecture on the work of Edgar Allan
Poe. What would seem like a nice little trip abroad
goes terrible wrong when his paranoia takes over the
events that follow...or maybe not?
In the midst of the early 90's recession, a series of
telephone messages trigger a major domestic crisis
for the Kosnicks, a yuppie couple at the end of their
rope. In the height of their despair, a Salesman tries
to sell them a book about positive thinking... but for
the Kosnicks it may be too late.
