Summary
Roy Cooper is the stoic "errand runner" for various New York criminals. He arrives in Los Angeles to shoot a man named Martin Shine a week after a powerful earthquake has knocked out cell service, buckled the freeways, and thrown L.A. into chaos. He does his job but, after the hit, Roy can't find where he parked his car. When he stumbles into the mugging and killing of a controversial mayoral candidate-- and a video of his actions goes viral-- Roy himself is mistaken for a hero
