Greg Johansson is a man living an ordinary, anonymous life -- with no family, no friends, and a dead-end job as a mail-order receptionist. And yet...to his dismay, he finds that someone out there does know him...and is out to destroy his life: an unknown assailant who is filing false complaints with Greg's employer, canceling his credit cards, leaving taunting messages on his answering machine, and posting notices around his neighborhood identifying him as a sexual predator.

These events bring Claire, a young woman fighting demons of her own, into his life. At her urging, Greg sets out to track down his tormentor. The search leads them to a phone booth outside a run-down motel; staking it out, they observe one of the motel's residents making a suspicious phone call. Returning to Greg's apartment, they find another message from the stalker. They've found their man, and retaliate by giving him "a taste of his own medicine."

But his opponent can't be shaken that easily...and another message to Greg's employer winds up costing him his job. That evening, Greg and Claire return to the motel to confront his adversary directly. But this confrontation leads only to tragedy, leaving Greg himself with blood on his hands.

The next morning, Greg's assailant makes his final move, summoning Greg to a face-to-face showdown at an abandoned lake estate. Greg sets out alone to face his adversary, only to discover answers he wasn't expecting...and the realization that the most important question was never WHO was doing this to him, but WHY...
