    • Our leading character is down on his luck. He’s just turned 40 and realizes he is at a dead-end job, with an abusive boss that takes credit for his ideas, passes him over for promotions and has been framing him for last year’s huge misstep in the companies bad earnings report. Furthermore, he is bullied by his neighbors, has an unfaithful girlfriend and of all the days - today he receives an email stating his computer has been hacked and he is being blackmailed for $50K.
      His rage, suppressed for 40 years, finally boils over and he takes matters into his own hands to chase down the predators that hack innocent people for money. His purpose in life now has clarity because he has nothing to lose.
