When a shrink can't solve the problem, and suspects something unusual, he sends the patient to a literary expert, who tries to decipher who is narrating the patient's life to him. The audience is in on the story... it's a famous author, who tends to kill off her heroes. She has writer's block, and is struggling to come up with an ending. As she struggles, so our hero struggles to find her, before she kills him off.
