Edmund - Kenneth Branagh photographed by Maneul HarlanYou know how much of our life we're alive, you and me? Nothing. Two minutes out of the year. When we meet someone new, when we get married, when, when, when, when we're in difficulties... once in our life at the death of someone that we love. That's... in a carcrash... and that's it. You know, you know, we're sheltered...

A fortune-teller's teasing rumination sends Edmond lurching into New York City's hellish underworld, his whole life abandoned in a searing quest for self-discovery and redemption.
