Summary
Tom is a loving, well-respected family man from a small Indiana town. When two criminals show up at his diner, Tom takes action and thwarts the robbery attempt. Suddenly heralded as a local hero, people look up to Tom as a man of high moral regard. But all the media attention attracts the mob, who show up at Tom's doorstep. Is it a case of mistaken identity, or does Tom have a history that no one knows about?
