Although he is a brilliant systems programmer, at the age of 39 he still feels like a failure condemned to live as a prisoner after being disrespected, humiliated and fired by his boss Massararu who wasted no time in dismissing him in front of the young and enthusiastic crowd of recent graduates of the Georgia State University. His life spiraled into destruction after turning into an alcoholic due to his never ending depression. Without any perspective of a better future, Christopher comes to a crossroad in his life, at a time of great financial difficulty where he makes drastic decisions that alters the course of his life. Throughout this excruciating and challenging phase, he loses control and after losing his temper, a violent argument with his wife Marie and eight year old son, Richard, spins out of control.
