Owen Mackenzie's life story abounds with sin and seduction, domesticity and debauchery.
His marriage to his college sweetheart is quickly followed by his first betrayal and he embarks upon a series of affairs.
His pursuit of happiness, in a succession of small towns from Pennsylvania to Massachusetts, brings him to the edge of chaos, from which he is saved by a rescue that carries its own fatal price.
