The film takes place in Mexico in 2003. Big businessman Samuel Ramos fears for his 9-year-old daughter, Pete. To protect, he hires former CIA Special Forces soldier John Crisi as a bodyguard. John takes up the job, but he himself is in a severe emotional crisis and is considering suicide. Acquaintance with a girl who develops into a warm friendship once again awakens his interest in life.
After a music lesson, a robbery was organized on Pita with the aim of abduction. John fought the criminals and shot four, but he was wounded. The criminals took the girl with them. Girls are turning to parents with a demand for a ransom of $ 10 million. However, something went wrong during the transfer of the ransom, and a shootout began, which resulted in the disruption of the transaction. The kidnapper informs Pete's parents that the girl was killed. With the help of his friend Paul Reibourne, the former bodyguard escapes from the hospital before he is fully recovered. John swears to Pete's mother, Lisa Ramos, that he will avenge and kill all those involved in the abduction.
First, John goes to the performers of the abduction. Under torture, the performer extradits the organizer. Moving up the chain, John finds out that the abduction was organized by the girl’s father. The $ 10 million ransom did not belong to him, but Samuel was going to crank out a scam, as a result of which he was supposed to get half the amount. During the transfer of money, a relative of one of the abductors was killed, and plans were upset. John recommends Samuel commit suicide, which he does.
After completing his revenge plan, John goes to the two direct supervisors of the abduction operation - brothers Daniel and Aurelio Sanchez. John goes first to Aurelio, and through him to Daniel, who reports that the girl is actually alive. He is ready to exchange the girl for John and his brother. Heavily injured John, of all his strength, exchanges and returns Pete to her mother. Then he surrenders to the hands of criminals and dies while being transported in a car.
The final scene is the assassination of Daniel Sanchez by the representative of the security forces of Mexico City, Miguel Manzano, during the arrest.
