Painting houses in suburban L.A., struggling young Sean Crawley (Chris McKenna) is approached by a shady character by the name of Duke (George Wendt), who introduces him to his boss, a real-estate developer called Ray (Daniel Baldwin). After hiring Sean to spy on a guy called Eric Gatley (Ron Livingston), in a drunken stupor Ray asks Sean to kill Eric for $13,000, which Sean does. But Ray has no plans of ever paying him.

Duke, Ray and his henchmen take Sean out to a farm where they commence to torture him, then beat his head to a pulp with golf clubs hoping he’s develop amnesia, as he stole the file Eric had been working on to incriminate Ray. But despite weeks of abuse, Sean somehow escapes and finds his way to the homeless shelter run by Eric’s wife Susan (Kari Wuhrer), who nurses him back to shape before they start to develop feelings for each other. But then one night she comes across the file Eric had been working on and attacks Sean, who while attempting to defend himself ends up killing her. Realizing that his final shot at redemption has just died, he goes back to the farm where he was tortured, looking to exact something sinister at those who in the span of a few weeks have irrevocably damaged his life…
