    (also played by Cage).
    While struggling to adapt the non-fiction book "The Orchid Thief" by
    author Susan Orlean
    (Streep), which is the story of an exotic orchid collector/poacher John

    eccentric characters
    become strangely intertwined as each one's search for passion collides
    with the others. *One
    story - four lives - a million ways it can end!
