Show Synopsis

Reclusive genius Abel Znorko fails to shoot an unwelcome intruder -- a journalist determined to interview him about his latest novel. But as Erik Larsen continues to force his way into Znorko’s solitude, it becomes clear that he knows more than he should about this epistolary romance between the author and a mysterious woman named Helen. Paring away each others’ lies and evasions, their interaction reveals an increasingly complex pattern in an apparently simple melody.
