Plot summary

What is Bliss movie plot?

Here is a short review of "Bliss" movie plot summary.

Greg Wittle (Owen Wilson), recently divorced, spends his work hours daydreaming and drawing pictures of an idyllic coastal retreat. As a result he is fired from his job, but during this process pushes his boss, Bjorn, accidentally killing him when Bjorn's head hits a table. Panicking, he conceals Bjorn's body behind some curtains before leaving the office for the bar across the street. There he meets Isabel (Salma Hayek), a seemingly homeless woman who appears to know what he has done, indicating Bjorn's body against the window. She speaks about having created this world with unintended consequences. As they watch, the window slips open and the body falls to the ground, causing onlookers to think Bjorn jumped to his death. Isabel drags Greg away, telling him he needs to lay low to avoid becoming a subject for the police, and to avoid all contact with his family. She sells off his phone and other possessions to get them some cash.
Isabel then takes Greg to a tented area she has under a traffic bridge, and they get to know each other more. He shares his drawings with her, and she offers him a small amount of a crushed yellow crystal (an unidentified hallucinogen) that will help make him feel good. Greg finds that with the crystal, he is able to manipulate the world to a degree such as by telekinetically tripping up other skaters at a roller rink. Isabel obtains the crystals from her supplier Kendo (Ronny Chieng), and once while she's getting a fresh supply Greg's daughter Emily (Nesta Cooper) spots him on the street below and tells him she has been desperately searching for him. She also gives him her graduation photo (an event that he missed) with her phone number on the back and asks Greg to call her. One day Greg wakes up in Isabel's tent and finds her absent but sees his drawings posted. He also finds Emily's picture and goes to call her but only gets an answering machine. When he returns, Isabel is there and furious that he tried to contact Emily, and asserts that Emily isn't real. As Greg refuses to let this go, Isabel decides she needs to prove what reality is to him. She plans to eject them both out of this 'false' world using a nasal injection device that uses 10 rarer blue crystals each, but she has only a partial amount for them both. She opts to go through with the exit process anyway.
