The Words promises to elate his fans once again as Cooper plays Rory Jansen, a struggling writer who finally achieves literary success after publishing what is called The Next Great American Novel. The only catch? He didn't write it.
When the original author surfaces, Jansen is forced to confront his choices and decide whether it's more important to keep up the lie or come clean. Throughout it all, one person is by his side: Dora (played by Zoe Saldana).
