Jack's in a rut. Depression and severe anti-social behavior has whittled down his existence to sleeping and watching television. He spends his days in a diner, playing church bingo and sleeping. When some hired thugs show up Jack's life is stirred up and the question of his existence comes to light.

Did You Know?
After finding out where his kidnapped daughter is being held and killing and partially eating an assassin sent to kill him, Jack packs his remaining money and treasures in a satchel and runs from his apartment, obviously intending not to return and to disappear forever. In the following scene he sits in an alley, pulls an ancient knife from his satchel and, with a thoughtful look, reads an inscription which says: "Legi convictio scientia veritate." The translation of this phrase is tricky but very significant. It means: Knowledge (scientia) is obtained (legi) actually (veritate) through companionship, intimacy and social intercourse (convictio). In other words, you know life only through your close contact with your fellow humans. This goes to the heart of Jack's unhappy existence. He has cut himself off from all meaningful human connections, including his daughter, and has therefore left himself no way to experience life. This insight causes him to decide to rescue his daughter and maybe try to live a life with human connections. Thus, in the following scene he begins to execute his rescue plan and maybe even confront his Old Testament God in the process. See more
