Chris Farraday (Mark Wahlberg) long ago gave up his life of crime, but after his brother-in-law, Andy (Caleb Landry Jones), messes up a drug deal for his sadistic boss, Tim Briggs (Giovanni Ribisi), Chris finds he has to slip back into his old ways—running contraband—to help Andy out of a sticky situation.

Chris quickly gets a team together with his best friend, Sebastian's (Ben Foster) help, for a run to Panama, hoping to return with millions in counterfeit bills.

When things go wrong, as time to reach the cash is quickly running out, Chris has to put his rusty skills to use in order to successfully navigate a treacherous criminal network of brutal drug lords, cops and hit men before his wife, Kate (Kate Beckinsale), and sons become targets.
