As an insurance salesman, Lester is good-natured and earnest, but has spent his life slowly being brow-beaten by the world around him. An emasculating wife, a successful brother, and a humiliating experience with an old high school classmate finally push Lester over the edge. With a little inspiration from a stranger by the name of Lorne Malvo, Lester embraces a darker side of himself.
