The noirish action of ''Nowhere Man'' may or may not be taking place entirely in the mind of its hero, Thomas Veil (BruceGreenwood), a photojournalist specializing in stark, brutal war shots. In the first episode, Veil attends a showing of his work, which includes "Hidden Agenda," a disturbing photo of American military personnel apparently presiding over an execution in an unnamed Third World country. Almost immediately upon its display, Veil's life is ... destroyed. Erased. Zeroed. [[UnPerson Un-Personed]]. He becomes a fugitive non-person, on the run from the mysterious forces that want the "Hidden Agenda" photo destroyed and forgotten.

The noirish action of ''Nowhere Man'' may or may not be taking place entirely in the mind of its hero, Thomas Veil (BruceGreenwood), a photojournalist specializing in stark, brutal war shots. In the first episode, Veil attends a showing of his work, which includes "Hidden Agenda," a disturbing photo of American military personnel apparently presiding over an execution in an unnamed Third World country. Almost immediately upon its display, Veil's life is ... destroyed. Erased. Zeroed. {{Un Person}}ed. He becomes a fugitive non-person, on the run from the mysterious forces that want the "Hidden Agenda" photo destroyed and forgotten.

The series had Veil {{walking the earth}}, dealing with often disturbing happenings throughout middle America which were probably caused by the same organization that was targeting him, although hard truths were difficult to come by on this show, and the viewer was often left with a sense of uncertainty which mirrored Veil's own.
