Gregory (a.k.a. "Joe") (DJ Qualls) is a disturbed fast-food worker, who has reached the end of his mental tether after being tormented and humiliated by his cruel boss, Mr. Crolick (William Sadler). Fed up with Joe’s ineptitude, Crolick fires Joe. Joe soon hatches a deadly plot for revenge and returns to the restaurant only to become side-tracked when he catches the eye of Stefanie (Nikki Reed), a beautiful female patron.
