Frank, middle-aged, alone and demeaned by his controlling mother - fights to achieve his dream. To do the difficult thing. To kill his enemy in a violent painful death - and to restore justice to the world.
Frank's story has parallels with a real-life bomb-plot in the town of Kilwinning, where an individual identifying as protestant, sent homemade parcel bombs to Scottish Catholics. The wall-box used by Frank in the film, is in fact the exact wall-box where devices were posted.
