Harry Scribner is a frustrated writer who finds himself caught between fictional worlds of his own making. While trying to write his action hero characters out of a maze-like complex, he is suddenly arrested by two detectives who confiscate his writings and charge him with fraud. As the line between fiction and reality becomes harder to discern, Harry’s characters become his only guide through the dangerous territory of the imagination.
