Set in the artsy Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan, tells the story of Adrian Jacobs, a difficult composer of equally difficult music whose sparsely attended performances involve musicians breaking glass and kicking metal buckets. In contrast, Adam's brother, Josh, is a commercially successful painter of vapid canvasses that corporate clients snap up by the dozen. But, Adrian's luck appears set to change when Josh brings the stunning Madeleine to one of his concerts. Not only d s she embrace his work and ask him to perform at her gallery, she invites him into her bed. As the two embark on a fiery affair, Adrian is introduced to a world of pretentious art collectors, dueling gallerists and eccentric artists, including Ray Barko, whose bizarre creations include chandeliers of stuffed animals and dead cows draped with jewelry. When Josh discovers Adrian and Madeleine's relationship and Madeleine refuses to exhibit Josh's paintings-even though the money they bring in is what keeps the gallery afloat-the stage is set for a showdown as discordant as Adrian's music.
