When Alvin Lee sees a knife-twirling mugger attacking an old lady, of course he steps in to help her. No matter that he's just walked out of a seedy massage parlor and that the resulting publicity might lose him both his job and his children. Alvin, you see, is the last of a dying breed: a Good Guy. He'll do anything for anyone and expect nothing in return. Take his job: he works unselfishly with violent, abusive teenagers. He only visited the massage parlor to help one of them. But in a world curdled by cynicism, who's going to believe that? Not even, it seems, the woman who knows him better than anyone, the woman he loves. So rather than being celebrated as a hero, he is cast out, deserted by friends and family, fired from his job and punched in the street by people who don't even know him. Is Alvin finally to lose his optimism? Or will his faith in human nature pay off after all?
