An encounter with a fortune-teller leads businessman Edmond to confront the emptiness of his life and marriage. Appalled, he flees into the vortex of the city's underbelly, plummeting into a free fall he mistakes for liberation. To Edmond's surprise, it's dark outside: hookers charge, pimps are violent, and the guy on the corner is a conman. Edmond is robbed, beaten and left bewildered. But there's a strange comfort at the bottom. Exhilarated by a random act of violence, Edmond picks up a waitress, Glenna, but their riotous sex play leads first to conflict and then to murder. With nothing to lose but his liberty, Edmond spirals further out of control, towards prison, disintegration and a very brutal redemption.
Plot summary from IMDb: A man in a suit at a Manhattan firm leaves work on Friday; he looks unhappy. He stops at a fortune teller's for a Tarot reading: "You are not where you belong," she tells him. That evening he quits his marriage and walks the streets of New York, passing from a classy bar to a gentleman's club, then to a high-class bordello, a mugging, a pawnshop, and a diner where someone does listen. He shares his insights with her and later with others. Violence, disappointment, and musings entwine as Edmond loses his moorings while believing he's found them. Where does he belong?
