Calvin Weir-Fields (Paul Dano) is a writer who wrote a good book once. He doesn't seem to have any stories left. His social life consists of taking his muttish dog on walks and occasionally doing author talks to audiences he feel no connection with. One day, he has a dream about a girl named Ruby Sparks. She is beautiful, unique, fun, and compassionate. She loves him just the way he is. His therapist suggests he write a story about Ruby. Calvin begins to write Ruby's character, and then, oddly, she appears in his apartment.
