Michael is breaking his parole conditions to visit his ex-wife in a foreign city. At the airport the car rental company mixes up his booking. As he drives into town a phone beeps from inside the glove compartment, the message: "Make sure. Keep it clean." He shrugs it off, but looks around the car and finds a gun. The phone rings: ‘You were meant to acknowledge receipt of message." Then the line goes dead. Michael can’t afford any trouble. The phone rings again. A voice explains the car was meant for an undercover policeman. He is given directions to drop off the minivan. When Michael gets stuck in a ditch on a dirt road he accelerates hard - and a woman, bound and gagged, rolls out of the trunk. She’s the kidnapped witness in a corruption trial: without her testimony there is no case. Desperate not to get involved he suggests she talk to the cops. When he arrives at the drop-off, he learns the cops are in on it - they will stop at nothing to eliminate any threat to them. Michael has a life-long habit of running from problems but this time running is not an option.
