Bob Maconel (Christian Slater) is a disillusioned office worker with ideas of murdering his co-workers. However, on one particular bad day, Bob crosses the line from potential killer to inadvertent hero - a fellow co-worker "goes postal" and shoots up the office before Bob does. Bob stops the shooter's plans by killing him with the gun he planned to use on the others, and in the process saves Venessa's (Elisha Cuthbert) life. The former invisible nobody is suddenly thrown into the spotlight of public notice, he is considered a hero by those he wished to murder, promoted by a grateful boss to "VP of Creative Thinking" and given all the perks of higher management. Meanwhile, he saves the object of his desire only to have her ask him to end her life; her injuries have left her a quadriplegic. Vanessa asks Bob to let her roll down a subway platform in front of an oncoming train. However, Bob is unable to go through with it and he stops her just before she reaches the train. They then discover that she can wiggle her little finger, providing hope that she may recover. Soon, Bob and Venessa start dating. However, Bob is still trapped by the demons of his past, and has insecurities that as soon as Venessa recovers, she will leave him. Towards the end, he breaks down and decides to finish what his co-worker had started by shooting the rest of the people at the company. However at the very end of the scene, it is revealed that Bob has been hallucinating all of the events since just before the initial shooting. This time, he is in the same position as his coworker was, only instead of killing his coworkers, he shoots himself in front of Venessa. The last scenes show police searching his house to find a note that reads "you may ask why I did what I did... but what choice did you give me? How else could I have gotten your attention?" In the news with reporters interviewing his neighbors, they say that "he was a quiet man."
