** Part of Martin's anxiety is that he has so little in common with anyone else, he has no idea how to answer when people ask him what he does for a living or how he's spent his last few years. So he tells them.

Martin Blank is a disaffected 28-year-old ex-soldier turned Government-trained freelance hit man. After he ends up botching his most recent job because of the handiwork of Grocer, a rival hit man, he gets an offer from the same rival looking to form a WeirdTradeUnion of [[MurderInc assassins and professional killers]], to, in Grocer's words, "prevent embarrassing overlaps." Blank flatly tells him he's not interested, only to be told to reconsider, given that [[AnOfferYouCantRefuse one way or another, Grocer's going to get him.]] Then there's an invitation to his high-school reunion, which he also refuses, until the company he's on the hook with for the botch tells him he needs to make good by killing someone out that way. Reluctantly, he heads back to Grosse Pointe, followed by a slew of other hitmen from the union looking to change his mind and two overly enthusiastic NSA agents also out to get him. Along the way he comes to grips with his emotional issues and reconnects with Debi Newberry (Creator/MinnieDriver), the girl he left behind ten years ago.
