Synopsis

Michael Forte, in his mid-30s, is an author who truly believes that a great writer cannot have children. He has written a novel about the subject that nobody wants to publish. He throws literary quotes into his conversation and like a character out of early Fellini, he is inundated with women who want him. But Michael only wants his book published and then he wants to move to a home on a craggy hillside above the sea in Maine. In his way are various obstacles: a pretty neighbor woman who wants to marry him (her grandfather is a major crime boss); a wealthy woman publisher who wants his children and who makes a tempting offer; a crazy attorney who is suing him for plagiarism; a car mechanic who is working on his car and secretly yearns to be a writer; and a wonderful, ephemeral young woman with whom Michael falls madly in love. All these encounters take place in one day during which Michael must decide where the rest of his life will lead.
