Plot – Screenwriter Charlie Kaufman is living a crisis because he cannot adapt for the cinema Susan Orlean's book 'The Orchid Thief'. In the meantime, his twin brother Donald is trying to write a story about a serial killer. After 13 weeks, while Donald has published his thriller, Charlie has reached a solution: the movie will talk about a screenwriter's crisis who doesn't know how to adapt a novel. Charlie travels to New York to meet Susan but, not having the courage to talk to her, asks Donald to replace him. The writer grants him a long interview, during which she tells how her curiosity made her meet the real John Laroche. Since her statements sound quite odd, the twins begin to tail her and discover that Susan has an affair with John. When they are spotted, their reaction is extremely violent.
