Patric is a movie about the confusion and mental anguish of its subject, Patric Simmonds, an angling columnist for The Tribune, his local paper, as he grapples with the advance of technology, the cult of celebrity and the erosion of values he holds dear. The only sources of comfort remaining to him are his four cats (his "children") and his beloved boat, Carthage.
As he confronts the challenges brought about by the threat to his job and his identity following the appointment of a new editor, he veers between reality and delusional fantasy which he projects on to the main characters in his orbit. These are Genevieve, an aspiring young model from Switzerland; Officer Brady, the local cop on the beat; Jennifer, the human resources manager at The Tribune and last, but by no means least, Ms Rosen, the paper's brash new editor.
Ms Rosen's decision to fire Patric from his 25-year tenure at the paper triggers a sequence of events that speed Patric's decline into madness and horror. The viewer is uncertain about what is real and what is imagined until the very end when it is finally revealed that Patric is the sole, sad victim of his delusional rage.
