Adaptation of Philip Roth's short novel, 'The Dying Animal', about an elderly college professor's affair with his young student. Respected professor of literature David Kepesh (Ben Kingsley) seems to have it all, a long-term relationship, a good job, and a comfortable lifestyle. But all that is turned upside down when the normally retiring, 62-year-old professor is drawn to one of his students, 24-year-old latin beauty Consuela Castillo (Penelope Cruz). As the relationship deepens, the usually free-thinking academic Kepesh finds himself becoming more sexually possessive of his new love-interest, a situation that quickly changes his personality and threatens to undermine his status and social standing.
