Michael Mason (Madden), an American pickpocket living in Paris, unknowingly steals the bag, leading to a deadly explosion in the heart of Paris, leaving him as the only suspect. Sean Briar (Elba), a tough guy agent brought in from the battlefields of Syria and Iraq, is brought in to be the field agent on the case. Briar soon realises that Michael is just a pawn in a much bigger game and is also his best asset to uncover a large-scale conspiracy. Going against commands, Briar recruits Michael to use his expert pickpocketing skills to help quickly track down the source of the corruption. A 24-hour thrill ride ensues and the unlikely duo discovers they are both targets and must rely upon each other in order to take down a common enemy.
