Leaving his family and his job, he sets about selling encyclopedias to town locals, including Dylan (Daniel Gillies), a former student whos estranged from his father (Scott Wilson) and sister (Elisabeth Waterston); Alice (Jane Adams), a waitress and single mother with whom he has a brief and awkward romantic encounter; and Drifter (Ian Somerhalder), a musician grieving the death of his brother (Joe Mazello).
