Cecil Clemenzi grew up in a Cleveland suburb where he was taunted and bullied from early childhood through adolescence. By the time he graduated from NYU and landed his first job as a runner for the New York Commodity Exchange, he was on his way to becoming an emotionally fragile yet surprisingly determined floor trader. One morning, following a freeze in Florida that sends the price of Orange Juice futures sharply higher, he loses everything in just one trade. Cecil blames another more successful floor trader for his loss and is determined to inflict as much retribution as possible on him. First, through one of his 'connected' relatives, Cecil tries to have the trader's daughter killed. Then he goes after some of his closest family friends. Finally, consumed with paranoia once he realizes his nemesis is now ruthlessly seeking his own revenge, he embarks on a desperate yet somewhat comical road trip that takes him to Laramie, Wyoming, where he unsuccessfully tries to start a new life. Alone, confused, and very afraid, he decides to go back home and meet his fate.
