Life in a Fishbowl

Three different tales of three different people, all of whom end up having a lasting effect on one another. Twenty years after a horrible personal tragedy, a middle-aged writer still drinks himself into oblivion every day. A young single mom moonlights as a prostitute to make ends meet. A former soccer star is recruited into the snake pit of international banking and loses touch with his family.
