With the stress of running a start-up company on his shoulders, Will Shaw (Henry Cavill) is not exactly in the vacationing mood, especially when it means he'll have to spend time with his father Martin (Bruce Willis), with whom he's always had a very tense relationship. Nonetheless he packs up and heads for Spain.

While on vacation with his family, Will discovers that his father is actually a CIA agent, one who's gotten himself into serious trouble. When the rest of his family disappears—kidnapped by the same shady people who are after his father—Will is thrust into a grand government conspiracy that puts all of their lives in danger.

With the authorities framing him for murder and the Embassy refusing to offer any help, Will goes on the run, hoping to find his family, elude capture and find the object the kidnappers are after: an important briefcase, whose contents are unknown. Will must find the briefcase and exchange it for his family before he loses them all forever.
