The Nature of Things: Two films explore fundamental questions
A brutal attack in the dead of night—the recurring nightmare of Henry (Rick Gomez), a successful novelist with a loving wife (Vinessa Shaw). After a farewell party thrown by his publisher (Bryan Cranston), Henry goes into isolation at his remote second home to try to turn his anxieties into fiction. Then a seemingly chance meeting with a mysterious drifter (Frank John Hughes) at a roadside restaurant offers a revelation that, if trusted, might be life-altering. But is the man who he claims to be?
