He wanders alone at night in search of companionship, and suddenly finds himself in an intimate relationship. Irritated by a raccoon that tears up his garbage, he sets out to catch it. Derek, a 34-year-old man, lives at home with his parents in Toronto.

Late at night, he wanders the streets alone and frequents nightclubs in search of companionship, until he meets Nicole and suddenly finds himself in an intimate relationship with her. When a neighbourhood raccoon becomes a constant nuisance by tearing up his family’s garbage, he sets out to catch it.
