Clyde Shelton (Gerard Butler) is a brilliant planner and inventor living in Philadelphia, and one night two robbers attack his home and brutally kill his wife and daughter.
The killers are caught, and assistant district attorney Nick Rice (Jamie Foxx) is assigned to the case. Nick is ordered to make an arrangement with one of the killers to testify against his partner for a ten year plea bargain prison condemnation. Clyde doesn’t want Nick to make the deal, but Nick says it was too late and the deal is done. The other killer got the death penalty. After ten years, the other killer is released from prison, and he soon ends up dead.
Clyde is arrested and kind of admits to Nick that he did it. Clyde is put in jail, and he warns Nick that he must fix the broken justice system that failed him and his family or else anyone connected to his case will soon die. Even from jail, Clyde’s threats become a reality, and Nick must stop Clyde before his family is next.
