Alan Wright is a successful, seasoned hit man. He operates with a strict set of rules. His jobs come from a man he has never met, a voice on the phone. After years of operating from one job to the next, Wright finds that he is ready to move on, to attempt to make something more of himself and to allow happiness to be become a part of his life.
This desire, and the decision that ensues, begins an ugly chain of events whereby Wright, by the virtue of the man that he is, slowly and inexorably pulls himself further and further away from the life he wants, miring deeper into the only life he has known, and the one he would love to leave behind.
