An average guy (Wilson) takes on the pseudo-superhero alter ego of The Crimson Bolt, after watching his wife (Tyler) fall under the spell of a charming drug dealer. Lacking super powers, he compensates by swinging a trusty wrench.
As The Crimson Bolt hones his hero character, he takes on the requisite sidekick (Page), a psychopathic teen who works at the local comic book store. Armed with deadly ideas, she becomes Boltie, and aids The Crimson Bolt as he tries to take down the drug dealer that destroyed his marriage.
The cast includes Rainn Wilson, Liv Tyler, Ellen Page, Nathan Fillion, Linda Cardellini, Michael Rooker, Gregg Henry, Kevin Bacon and Zach Gilford.
