Storyline – Nobody 2021
Hutch Mansell is played by Emmy winner Bob Odenkirk (Better Call Saul, The Post, Nebraska), an underappreciated and neglected father and a husband who takes life’s indignities in stride and never fights back. He’s a nobody. Hutch refuses to protect himself or his family when two robbers break into his suburban home one night, hoping to avoid serious crime. Blake (Gage Munroe, The Shack) is dissatisfied with him, and his companion, Becca (Connie Nielsen, Wonder Woman), seems to be pulling away from him.
The incident’s aftermath ignites Hutch’s long-simmering anger, reawakening dormant impulses and propelling him down a bloody road that will reveal dark secrets and lethal abilities. Hutch must save his family from a deadly adversary (famous Russian actor Aleksey Serebryakov, Amazon’s McMafia) in a barrage of fists, gunfire, and squealing tires—and ensure that he will never be underestimated as a nobody again.

Hutch Mansell (Bob Odenkirk) is a mild-mannered family man who is characterized as unyielding in the face of adversity. As two robbers break into his suburban home one night, he chooses not to protect himself or his family, hoping to avoid any serious consequences. Hutch’s son, Blake (Gage Munroe), and wife, Becca (Connie Nielsen), were dissatisfied with him and began to distance themselves from him. The incident reawakened his dormant abilities and revealed his dark secrets, as well as his frustration of being an unsubstantial father and husband.
Hutch Mansell appears to be an average man; he and his wife Becca have two children, he works in his father-in-law Eddie’s metal fabrication business as an office worker, and he keeps to himself. The monotony of his life is wearing him down; he and his wife haven’t been intimate in years, and his son Blake has no regard for him. Only his daughter, Sammy, displays some affection.
A man and a woman break into his house one night and hold him at gunpoint while demanding money. Hutch hands them his watch, but as they attempt to flee, one of them is tackled by Blake. Hutch is about to hit them with a golf club when he stops and lets them flee, causing Blake to get a black eye.
Blake drifts further away from his father as a result of the incident, and everyone in Hutch’s life, from his neighbor to his brother-in-law at work, questions why he did not try to stop the burglars. Hutch uses a concealed radio in his office to contact his supposedly deceased half-brother, Harry, explaining that he held back because the burglars were desperate, terrified, and had an unloaded gun.
Later that day, Sammy approaches her father for assistance in locating her ring, which Hutch claims was taken by the thieves. He goes to see his elderly father David without saying anything and borrows his old FBI badge and pistol to track down the burglars. He tracks them down and threatens them, but when he learns they robbed him to get money for their sick baby’s medical care, he feels ashamed and flees. A gang of Russian thugs stops the bus he’s taking home, and Hutch vents his rage by savagely beating them all. When one of them has trouble breathing after being struck in the stomach, he uses a drinking straw to create a temporary tracheostomy and saves his life.
The Barber provides Hutch with details about one of his victims: he is the younger brother of Yulian Kuznetsov, a notorious Russian mafia enforcer. Despite his hatred for his brother, Yulian feels compelled to avenge him and dispatches a crew led by his right-hand man Pavel to attack Hutch at home.
Hutch hides his family and kills the majority of the assailants before Pavel uses a taser to subdue him and places him in the trunk of a vehicle to take him to Yulian. Hutch uses a fire extinguisher he finds in the trunk to blind his kidnappers, causing the vehicle to crash and killing Pavel. He returns home, sends Becca and the kids to a safe place, and, after rounding up the rest of Yulian’s crew, he finds Sammy’s kitty cat bracelet where it’s always been: at the base of his stereo and FM radio equipment.
He then sets fire to his home in order to wipe out all evidence.
Hutch is revealed to be a former “auditor,” an assassin hired by intelligence services to kill individuals deemed untouchable or too difficult to apprehend. He worked hard before he let a target he was supposed to kill for embezzling US government funds off the hook. When Hutch returned a year later, he discovered the man had created a new life and family for himself; desiring a life similar to his, Hutch agreed to retire against his bosses’ wishes and has since done whatever he can to erase all recollection of his old life.
Hutch burns Yulian’s art collection and the Obshak money he was covering for the mob, telling him he can either come after him or take what he has left and run, after giving Eddie a stash of gold bars to buy his business from him. Yulian summons his entire workforce and pursues Hutch to the warehouse, where David and Harry arrive to assist Hutch in eliminating the gangsters with a range of weapons and lethal traps that Hutch had set up.
With the exception of Yulian, who shoots and kills Harry, they kill all of the gunmen. Hutch charges Yulian with a Claymore mine attached to a bulletproof shield and detonates it, killing Yulian. He lets his father and brother flee and is apprehended by the cops, only to be released with no charges brought against him.
Hutch receives a call three months later, while buying a new house with Becca, indicating that his services are still needed. Harry and David are seen heading to an unknown location in an RV loaded with weapons in a mid-credits sequence.
