Marty is a bored temp at a mortgage office, out to get what he feels he deserves in life. He is a small-time con artist drifting from one scam to the next. When his latest ruse goes awry, mounting paranoia forces him to hide out, first in his co-worker’s basement for a week, and later in a creepy neighborhood in Detroit. There, depending on what’s in his pocket at the time, he will spend his nights either at a derelict motel, or a place of luxury. Marty’s misdirected paranoia soon reaches a nihilistic state, in which he will feel invincible.
