is hit by a passing SUV and is killed instantly.
A year later and now
Detective Fisher, Danny has to get the plumber over and the action
begins. Molly (Ashley Scott) leaves for work, leaving Danny with the
plumber. Danny's cell phone rings and on the other end is Miles who has
managed to escape from prison and is on a mission. Molly has been
kidnapped, Danny's house has been blown up killing the plumber and the
start of a game has begun. A game of 12 rounds, each round Danny must
succeed in order to see Molly again.
As Danny progresses through the
rounds, causing mayhem and the deaths of a few of his friends and
colleagues, he suddenly realises that the rounds are set up to give
Miles certain tools and aid to carry out a robbery from the federal
mint. Now with this information Danny is on the hunt to catch Miles
before he leaves the country and kills Molly. Miles forces Molly to fly a
helicopter to aid his escape but doesn't count on her stalling and
giving Danny the chance to jump onto the helicopter and subdue Miles. A
fight on the helicopter ensues and the helicopter loses hydraulics.
