A poet is controlled by a Voice.

Roger, a poet, is controlled by a Voice. He runs away from his family and friends, and is now homeless. Disheveled, injured, and brought to the ER, Roger is discovered by Cathy, his high school sweetheart, who is now married and a nurse. Tiffany, Cathy's younger sister, has a melodious voice that helps to wrestle the Voice's grip on Roger's mind. Along the way, Roger keeps describing his tribulations in vivid poems.
