What good is getting on with things without the one that completes you?
Where love ends and obsession begins is a thin line blurred by too much drink and too many drugs. Girls come and girls go and what they mean is precisely nothing. London, Paris, it's all the same ...
What happens when you're approaching thirty, halfway down the wrong career path, and the girl of your dreams is giving you nightmares? Our anti-hero lurches from one unsatisfying liaison to another, fixated on the only woman he can never really have. Reeled in and cast aside, things that used to hold importance - job, family, travel, romance - are rendered meaningless as the one thing he longs for continues to elude him.
After all, what good is getting on with life without the person who completes you?
