Howard Inlet (Will Smith) is a brilliant, creative advertising executive in New York City with partners (Edward Norton, Kate Winslet, Michael Peña) who are also his best friends. After the tragic death of his young daughter, he becomes a shattered version of his former self. He withdraws from the world, leaving his friends struggling to run the company. In an effort to cope with his overwhelming grief, he writes letters to Time, Love and Death.

His friends get hold of the letters and hire three actors (Jacob Latimore, Keira Knightley, Helen Mirren) to pose as Time, Love and Death in an effort to get through to Howard. If that fails, they hope to have him declared incompetent so they can sell the company, which will soon be worthless with no one to lead it. What they don't realize is that the burdens that each of them is coping with will come into play as Howard ultimately learns that even the deepest losses can lead to moments of beauty and meaning.
