Here’s what the distributor says about their film: A novelist with a gambling problem, Alex (Luke Wilson), decides to try to force himself out of writer’s block by putting himself in a dangerous situation. Taking a $50,000 advance on his next novel to pay off his (gambling) debts, he agrees to a thirty day deadline that, if he doesn’t turn in a finished novel by, will mean the publisher will own anything else he writes for the rest of his life. So, he hires a beautiful stenographer, Emma (Kate Hudson), to help him get the book done in time, who also helps him inspire what eventually becomes a love story, as they fall for each other.
