Set in the 1990s, a young woman quits college and moves from California to New York City. An aspiring writer, she hustles her way into a job with an old-school literary agency that represents the American classic writer J.D. Salinger, author of A Catcher in the Rye. Her job is strictly secretarial and involves answering the fan mail of Salinger with a boilerplate form letter. The young woman gets into big legal and ethical trouble when she decides to start skipping the form letter to compose her own answers to Salinger's fans without the author's prior approval.
