A man is let go from his job and approached by people who have glasses that see 24 hours into the future. They protect people from accidents and offer him a job.

They have observed events themselves and fire him for his dishonesty. He decides to watch his boss in the river and when he arrives, a truck knocks him into the river. His former boss is passing by and jumps in to save him. That is why he is struggling. The time glasses people save the two of them, and admonish their former employee that because of his vengeful attitude, he nearly doomed himself. He resolves to mend his ways.
