During the opening credits of the film No Good Deed, Jack Friar is shown as playing the piano. During this time, Jack will be injecting himself with some insulin. As this comes to a conclusion, Jack will answer the door to find his neighbor. He is there to ask if Jack can help him. His daughter has been missing and staying with her boyfriend over on Turk Street. Jack will protest claiming that he is leaving to go on vacation to a fantasy music camp for a few weeks but will find himself giving into the neighbor.
Over on Turk Street, Jack will show the boyfriends photo around to find no one who has seen him or offers any help to find him. When it begins to rain, Jack will spot an elderly woman who has fallen on her steps of her porch. He runs over to her to offer his help and is offered to come inside. He will meet her husband Thomas and they will offer him a nice cup of tea. The men will be sitting in the living room when Jack explains that he is trying to find someone. He reaches for the photo but cannot find it. As he offered his help to the elderly woman, the photograph blew away. Hoop will emerge and will hold a gun to his head.
Jack will be held hostage by not only Hoop but also a man named Tyrone and a woman by the name of Erin. All of them are planning a bank robbery.
Tyrone will tell the elderly couple to go to the small airfield where they are to prepare a small plane. Erin is to remain at the home while they finish things up. She will feel almost sorry for Jack and will tell him that if she were to let him go, they would kill her. This is where the saying comes in, No Good Deed Goes Unpunished.
