Synopsis
David Kern is a socially awkward waiter who works a dead end job in a chic cafe. One day he stumbles upon the biggest break of his life, an unpublished manuscript which he finds in a jammed nightstand drawer. He reads the manuscript, and thinking there might be something to it, claims it as his own in order to impress Marie, a pretty literature student who frequents the cafe. The manuscript turns out to be a lost masterpiece. Marie is quite taken with this stunning new writer, and is not content to let the hefty document go unpublished, much to David's dismay. With David's guilty conscience nibbling away, a stranger appears - the real author of the story, Jackie Stocker. Jackie wastes no time prying into David's life and turning his newfound fame into a living nightmare. David, unable to comprehend what is unfolding before him, must come to grips with what his deception has caused, and figure out what exactly are Jackie's plans. Will Jackie expose David as a fraud, or will he just "settle" for blackmailing him? Based on the novel by Martin Suter.
