Karl (Tygh Runyan), is a fiercely lonely would-be writer who has just had a near-death experience and is now fixated on the last person he saw before blacking out: Paul (Brad Dryborough), a frustrated and equally alienated former copy editor whom Karl believes to be his exact double.
After a series of comically polite and solicitous notes, the two arrange to meet. It doesn't exactly go swimmingly, but Paul does agree to look over Karl's 20,000-page manuscript, entitled A Book About How Much I Hate Myself.
When months pass and he hears nothing, Karl moves onuntil he discovers other people promoting a book curiously like his on a local television talk show. Determined to expose the plagiarists, Karl demands that Paul drive him to Portland to intercept the imposters on their book tour.
