Sometimes the thunder of our own thoughts is more dangerous than lightning itself.Charles is an unattractive, fear-ridden accountant whose life is dominated by jealousy. He manages to fool a gorgeous model named Lucy into going on a few dates, but can't shake the obsessive self-doubt that pervades his mind.When Charles' paranoia begins to ruin not only their relationship, but alsoLucy's friendships and career, she dumps him. Overwhelmed with grief, he convinces himself that he's in love with his best friend David: a handsome, mild-mannered photographer. Grief turns into betrayal when he goes to David's apartment to confess his love - and discovers that David and Lucy are lovers.While strolling the streets of Massachusetts with a long Japanese sword tucked behind his belt, Charles has the intention of fatally slashing the treacherous couple - but is shaken from his lunacy when he encounters anold friend. Jin is a girl who's a lot like Charles, only less prone to murderous rages. As their relationship develops, she's able to keep him intrigued with curious gifts like a lock of her hair. She makes him more grounded by disproving his baseless pessimism with irrefutable logic.Through inspiring him to focus on his repressed belief in miracles rather than self-hatred, she is able to help him release his negative obsessions.
