Max Fist (Joe Manganiello) is a hard-drinking homeless man who claims to have been a superhero in a world called Chromium. He says that while he was battling his nemesis Cleo and trying to protect his world from her evil doomsday device, he slipped through an opening between time and space and crashed on Earth, where his powers are inert. Aspiring journalist Hamster (Skylan Brooks) interviews Max and slowly becomes his friend. Meanwhile, Hamster’s sister Indigo (Zolee Griggs) works for a drug dealer called “The Manager” (Glenn Howerton), hoping to make a better life for herself and her brother. When Indigo tries to make a break, an all-out war starts, and Max must help his new friends.
