You can't change the world, but you can die trying.
Telling your boss where to stick his job and then burning the company car isn't the best way to react when you discover your wife is having an affair with a bloke from work. Running away to stay with a friend who isn't friendly anymore isn't sensible either. Sleeping with that old friend's best friend's girlfriend isn't wise, but stealing the best friend's car and using it to commit a violent crime is surely madness.
But when your actions cause someone to burn to death, you know you've gone too far.
Your wife thinks you're a missing person.
Your friend thinks you're a murderer.
The police think you're a terrorist.
You're probably all three.
But worse than that, the girl of your dreams doesn't want to know.

When the pursuit of that purpose results in the death of the one man who could have helped him, Jack realises he can't steal someone else's idea of truth, he has to find his own.
