The film is set in a dark cityscape at night, and follows a masked hero who defends the city from criminals. The Midnight Man begins the film by traveling to the town's center, where a group of thugs have decided to rob a department store. They are assembled at all of the exits and are planning on robbing both the store and the customers of the store. Midnight Man attempts to thwart this from occurring by fighting the men and tying them up so that they can be collected by the police. Midnight Man did not expect what comes next.
