Storyline:Davis Mitchell (Jake Gyllenhaal) is in his mid-thirties and a successful banker on Wall Street, who has so far lived a perfect life far from any trouble. But one day, when his wife is killed in a car accident, he falls into a state of shock that makes him emotionally deaf. The efforts of his father-in-law Phil (Chris Cooper) to bring him back to the right path also help. Instead, Davis gets bogged down in innumerable letters of complaint to a vending machine company because the day his wife died, a vending machine in the hospital malfunctioned. The disarmingly honest post office receives Karen Moreno (Naomi Watts), who works in the company's customer service and has to carry a heavy cross herself. Between her and Davis soon an unusual connection develops, in which they find mutual consolation. Soon Davis realizes that he has to take his old life completely apart before he can start a new one.
