On an ordinary day, a deranged man goes on a rampage in a diner and randomly shoots the customers. The survivors of the tragic episode are deeply affected by the shooting, each having a different reaction: the youngest, Anne Hagen, becomes popular at school telling her version of the shooting; her friend Jimmy Jaspersen becomes mute and closes himself to the outer world; waitress Carla Davenport neglects her baby and has several vulgar relationships with men; Dr. Bruce Laraby loses his self-confidence and tries an experimental treatment; and the compulsive gambler Charlie Archenault believes that he is lucky in the game and gambles all his money, but he has a jinx.
