Nobody stars two-time Emmy winner Odenkirk as Hutch Mansell, an underestimated and overlooked family man who takes all of life’s punches on the chin until the night when two thieves break into his suburban home, in which he disappoints his son and wife after declining to defend himself and his family in an effort to prevent serious violence. With all of his repressed rage finally ready to burst after realizing something precious was stolen during the robbery, Hutch goes on a brutal path to correct things, but after crossing a dangerous adversary and risking his dark secrets being revealed, he must use his dormant fighting instincts and save his family in a barrage of fists, gunfire and squealing tires.

Alongside Odenkirk (Better Call Saul), the ensemble roster for the film includes Nielsen, Gage Munroe (The Shack), Russian actor Aleksey Serebryakov (Amazon’s McMafia), Emmy winner Christopher Lloyd (Back to the Future), and multi-hyphenate musician-actor RZA (The Man With The Iron Fists).
