Tim Thomas (Will Smith) is a former aerospace engineer of great esteem who is now working as an IRS auditor instead.  He uses his status as an auditor to enter seemingly random taxpayers' lives and homes, gaining an intimate insight into their everyday routines.  Yet why so?  And why in one instance does he taunt a blind man? 

His gentlemanly demeanor, loosely resembles serial killer Ted Bundy's known MO and suggests evil, yet in contrast the auditor's random acts of kindness seem saintly and genuine.  Tim's actions eventually lead to a philosophical paradox that will inevitably trigger debate by the film's end.

Seven Pounds was a box office success, generating over $166 million worldwide -- or three times its cost of production.
