Willard is a down trodden man who lives with his ill and abusive mother in her house. His boss has stolen his father's company and now humiliates Willard on a daily basis at his work. His only friends are the rats who infest his home. He grows particularly close to a rat named Socrates, who he comes to see as his only friends. However, one of Willard's coworkers, Cathryn is also fond of him. She slowly becomes his friend and love interest over time. Upon discovering that he is going to be fired and losing Socrates, Willard goes mad and makes a deal with the remaining rats to dispose of his cruel and abusive boss. The rats are all too happy to oblige, but Willard may find his partnership with them even more dangerous than his boss.
