A superhero enduring a downturn in his career strikes up a curious romance with the wife of a man tasked with repairing his image.

John Hancock, a once-loved turbocharged superhero, finds his public stock plummeting to an all-time low after his rampant alcoholism and hard-living ways turn him into one of Los Angeles' most hated individuals. A serendipitous rescue of PR executive Ray Embrey from an oncoming train leads to a bid to restore Hancock's public image, one that grows complicated when he allows his unsavory ways to get the best of him once more and pursues a secretive fling with Ray's wife, Mary.
