Former CIA agent Ben Logan (Eckhart) hopes to make a fresh start with his estranged 15-year-old daughter Amy (Liberato). He takes work in Belgium as a security expert for a large multinational corporation. Arriving one morning to work, Logan discovers his division no longer exists, his colleagues have all vanished, and his assistant is actually a trained operative intent on killing both him and his daughter. To survive long enough to figure out what happened and why someone wants them killed, Logan and Amy flee, with a highly trained kill squad in pursuit. Father and daughter, little more than strangers, must rely on one another and learn to trust each other. That trust is threatened when Amy learns the truth about her father’s past.
The creative team includes director of photography Kolja Brandt, editor Dominique Fortin, production designer Jean-Francois Campeau, and costume designer Pascaline Chavanne.
