Plot Summary
Disgruntled security guard Mark David Chapman (Jonas Ball) identifies so intensely with "The Catcher in the Rye" that he starts believing himself the novel's protagonist, Holden Caulfield. Like Holden, he hates phonies, and fixates on John Lennon as one of the worst. His contempt soon evolves into a murderous rage, and Chapman vows to kill Lennon. He flies from Hawaii to New York City twice, stalking the ex-Beatle until their fateful encounter outside the Dakota.
