Felix Bonhoeffer, un scénariste, vit entre deux mondes : le monde réel et celui qu'il a développé dans son esprit au fil du temps. Il n'a pas conscience qu'il vit au bord d'une ligne depuis des années et qu'il est sur le point de la franchir. Il se trouve donc perplexe lorsque, engagé pour remanier l'histoire d'un meurtre situé dans un café désert, des personnages du film qu'il est en train d'écrire apparaissent dans la vie réelle et vice-versa. Et alors qu'il essaye tant bien que mal de vivre sereinement entre ces deux mondes, des références à des chansons et à des films de science fiction des années 1950 se mêlent soudain à son quotidien, sélectionnées de manière aléatoire par sa mémoire...
