In a rocky, sand-swept, sun drenched landscape that clearly suggests Afghanistan, Mohammed, a bearded combatant (Vincent Gallo) ambushes three unwary soldiers before being captured by US forces. Jailed, interrogated and beaten, the man is then shipped off with other detainees to a frozen, wintry, unidentified European nation, where he effects a blood-drenched escape and sets off cross-country, with soldiers, local authorities, dogs and helicopters hot on his trail.
