A series of loosely connected vignettes and flashbacks explores the life of a filmmaker named Nic (Julian Sands).

In another, 16-year-old Nic (Jonathan Rhys-Meyers) discovers his girlfriend is having sex with someone else. Meanwhile, a creative retelling of the story of Adam (Femi Ogumbanjo) and Eve (Hanne Klintoe) frames the separate narratives.
