Odenkirk and David Leitch are both involved in the production of the movie.
The Plot of Nobody
Hutch Mansell seems like a normal guy. He and his wife Becca have two kids, and he works in an office at his father-in-law Eddie’s metal fabrication business. His marriage isn’t going well, and his job seems boring.
One night, an armed man and woman break into his house, and his teenage son, Blake, tackles one of them. Hutch doesn’t want to get involved, so he asks his son to tell the man to let go, but the man hits the boy.
The thieves leave, but everyone thinks he is a loser because of what happened. Hutch talks to his brother Harry through a hidden radio in his office. He says that he didn’t stop the burglars because they were scared, desperate, and using an unloaded guns.
Later that day, his daughter Abby asks for help finding her lost kitty cat bracelet. Without saying anything, Hutch goes to see his dad, David and borrows his dad’s old FBI badge and gun to find the thieves. He goes to their apartment and threatens them, but he leaves when he sees that their baby is sick.
Thugs stop the bus he takes home, and Hutch, looking for a way to vent his anger, beats them up by saying he is protecting a young woman from being sexually harassed. When he gets home, he realizes that he hasn’t been talking to his family, so he tries to get back in touch with them.
Harry gets him to go see “The Barber.” He tells Hutch that one of his victims is the younger brother of a Russian crime boss named Yulian Kuznetsov. In order to get back at Hutch, Yulian sends a group led by Pavel to Hutch’s house to catch him. Before Pavel stuns him and catches him, Hutch hides his family and kills most of the attackers.
When Hutch is locked in a car and finds a fire extinguisher in the trunk, he uses it to blind the driver. This makes the car crash, killing Pavel and the rest of his crew. Before Hutch sets his house on fire to destroy any evidence, he makes sure his family is safe.
Hutch tells them that he used to work as an assassin for intelligence agencies as an “auditor” (“the last guy any organization wants to see at their door”). After letting one of his targets go free, Hutch found him a year later. He had changed and was living happily with his new family. Hutch quit his job against the wishes of his bosses because he wanted a similar life.
After buying Eddie’s business with gold bars, Hutch burns the Obtshak money that Yulian was keeping safe for the mob, along with Yulian’s art collection. Yulian and his men go after Hutch to the factory, where David and Harry show up to help kill the gangsters with weapons and deadly traps that Hutch had set up. They kill all the gunmen except for Yulian, who is left alone.
When Hutch runs out of bullets, he puts a Claymore mine on a piece of bulletproof glass and throws it at Yulian. This kills Yulian. After making sure that his father and brother got away, Hutch was arrested. His police interrogators were surprised when they found out that he would not be charged.
Three months later, Hutch gets a call while he and Becca are looking for a new house. The caller says that they still need his help. In a scene during the credits, Harry and David drive an RV full of guns to a place that isn’t shown.
