The reclusive former head of a Fortune 500 company descends ever deeper into the abyss of insanity, ultimately becoming unable to discern whether his paranoia concerning his estranged wife is founded in fact, or just the bitter delusion of a fractured psyche. Jonathan Hollis (Judd Nelson) used to be an influential business magnate; these days he's withdrawn into his childhood home, a social recluse seemingly intent on dragging his wife down into the darkness, too. He's forced his wife Lydia to say goodbye to the New York social scene in favor of withering away in his crumbling castle, and when Jonathan begins to suspect that her resentment has turned malicious, he recruits his old pal Devlin to discern whether Lydia is attempting to make him look insane so she can abscond with his fortune. Has Jonathan's deep-seated greed finally gotten the best of him, or is Lydia really the manipulative mastermind that he's come to see her as? A Devlin goes to work sorting the facts from the paranoid delusions, Jonathan begins to question the loyalties of everyone around him while being drawn ever deeper into a deadly game of cat and mouse.
