The trailer introduces Otto, a man who seems to hate humans. Walking around his block, Otto resents people with dogs because the animals pee on the sidewalk, angers at vans parking where they’re not allowed, and angers at neighbors who come out early in the morning to exercise. Any small public display of joy makes Otto frown, and he leads a solitary life, making enemies of everyone he meets. However, there seems to be a reason for Otto’s crankiness, as the trailer also reveals that he only has a real human connection in the moment when he visits his dead wife in the cemetery.

Turning Otto into a sane person isn’t an easy task, however, as the trailer also shows that he’s willing to fight a wizard disguised as a clown for a quarter coin.
