Charlie Waldo, paying self-imposed penance for an old case gone horribly wrong, lives deep in the woods as a minimalist, pathologically committed to owning no more than one hundred things.  But after the girlfriend he left behind tracks him down and disrupts his solitude, he finds himself forced back into action, dragged into a sensational Hollywood murder investigation.
