Guy Normal is an everyday sort of guy, as his name suggests. Stuck in a boring, badly paid job as a postman in Phoenix, Arizona it seems unlikely he will ever realise his ambitions of a laid back new life surfing the waves off the coast of Australia. But one day, Guy becomes the sole survivor of a headline-grabbing postal massacre and is forced to go on the run. The cops mistakinly think he's an ice-cold killer and so do a deadly organisation of assassins-for-hire, run by the sinister Ben Gazzara. They recruit Guy in best Nikita fashion, brainwash him into forgetting his past identity, and set him loose to kill on their behalf - with totally unexpected blackly comical results!
