Paul, an advertising executive, is reeling from a recent breakup, so he starts corresponding with Rod, an incarcerated man in another state. While Rod deals with life behind bars and an antagonistic prison guard, Paul tries unsuccessfully to keep his pen pal a secret from his co-workers, one of whom is frantically planning her wedding.

Meanwhile, Paul's ex-boyfriend is trying to win him back. The letters continue and develop into more of a relationship than either man was expecting, and neither knows how to handle the feelings that have blossomed between them.
