All college professor Nick Price wanted was to meet an intelligent woman in order to discuss classic literature and philosophical theory. How was he to know that his friendship with the mysterious poet Megan Van Beek was going to not only separate him from his beautiful wife, but also ignite a presumed attack on the vast institution of modern arts and literature for their support of "gauche" and "talentless" artists? As Nick torturously unravels the deranged motives behind Megan's crusade, his three buddies grapple with their own life's hurdles. Each guy must eventually conquer their own personal demons in order to succeed in life and love. (WGA 842079)

"That Manic Light" is primarily a dialogue-driven screenplay similar to such films as Dead Poets Society and Good Will Hunting.
