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. When he is fired from his job, he imagines accidentally killing his boss, Bjorn, and concealing the body behind some curtains before leaving the office for the bar across the street. Greg alternates between reality and drug-induced, psychogenic fantasy. In a bar, he meets Isabel (Salma Hayek), a homeless woman who appears to know what he has done by indicating Bjorn's body against the window from her view of the building. She speaks about having created this world with unintended consequences. As they watch the building, they see the window slip open and the body fall 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 takes Greg to a tented area she has under a traffic bridge and they get to know each other. 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. Isabel helps Greg imagine that with the crystal, he is able to manipulate the world telekinetically.
Through a series of scenes, it becomes clear that Greg is descending deeper into hallucination and that his telekenesis is in his own mind. He is homeless and has lost a sense of the passage of time. After an altercation at a roller rink in which he and Isabel imagined telekinetically tripping up a bully and other skaters at a roller rink, he watches police arrest the bully, only to discover himself in the back of the squad car. Released as unidentified, Greg tries to buy fast food but discovers he has no cash; a kind store employee later gives him 'expired' food. Meanwhile, his daughter Emily searches for him.
