Chris Pratt (Joseph Gordon-Levitt), a former high school star athlete, crashes his car one night due to reckless driving. The accident kills his best friend and his best friend’s girlfriend, while his own girlfriend loses a leg. Pratt himself has a head injury that lowers his IQ and diminishes his memory to the point where he has to refer to a notebook to do simple, everyday tasks.

He manages to get a job as a janitor in a bank, but is recruited by criminals to help them pull off a robbery.
