A young and impatient stockbroker is willing to do anything to get to the top, including trading on illegal inside information taken through a ruthless and greedy corporate raider who takes the youth under his wing.
William (D-FENS) just wants to get home to see his daughter on her birthday. Unfortunately, nothing seems to be going right for him. First there's the traffic jam, then the unhelpful Korean shopkeeper who "doesn't give change". D-FENS begins to crack and starts to fight back against the every day "injustices" he encounters on his journey home. The film has a story running in parallel about a desk-bound cop who is about to retire. He's retiring for his wife's sake, and obviously isn't happy about it.

It's just not William Foster's (Michael Douglas) day. Laid off from his defense job, Foster gets stuck in the middle of big traffic jam. Foster on his way to attend his daughter's birthday party at the home of his ex-wife (Barbara Hershey), Foster leaves his vehicle and begins walking, running into one problem after another. He also slowly loses it, finally snapping at a fast food restaurant (a spoof of McDonald's) that refuses to serve him breakfast because he was late. Foster also known as "D-FENS" because of his custom license plate quickly becomes a source of terror to some, a hero to others. It's up to hesitant cop Prendergast (Robert Duvall), on the eve of retirement, to bring Foster down. Douglas and Duvall nail their roles within this well written movie. If you haven't seen this movie you are in store for a nice work.
