Reginald Peabody, CPA, is tired of routine and conformity, tired of feeling unnecessary and unwanted. He is on a window ledge twenty floors above the street and is going to jump as soon as he has finished his lunch. His mother, coworkers, a policeman, a priest, and a window washer try to dissuade him. They use up his lunch hour, so he has to wait until his coffee break to avoid jumping on company time. While he waits a final character brings him a reason to live.
