FIVE WAYS TO KILL A MAN is the story of a day in the life of Sam, a young man who lives in a world unlike ours. Sam's is a world where the effects of every decision he makes are constantly made visible to him. When Sam buys a new pair of shoes, fills his tank or orders a coffee, the people that he has relied upon become a part of his reality. As the day goes on, Sam amasses a group of vastly different people who have helped him through his day, but as the day draws to a close, he is left with the problem of what to do with them.
