Welcome to the Punch Overview

When Jacob Sternwood (Mark Strong) escaped following a robbery, detective Max Lewinsky (James McAvoy) was angry that the criminal had gotten away and vowed that if he ever got another chance, he would nab Sternwood and put him behind bars.

That proved difficult, because in the wake of his success, Sternwood left London and gave up his life of crime. However, three years later, when his son winds up in a hospital due to a heist that went wrong, Sternwood has to return. This gives Max the second chance he's dreamed about. But as the detective digs deeper into the case, he uncovers a deep conspiracy.
