Will Montgomery (Nicolas Cage) is a master theif who after being double-crossed in a heist gone awry is sent to prison for 8 years. Upon his release he is ready to leave his criminal past behind and try to rebuild a relationship with his estranged daughter Allison. The FBI and his old cohorts believe that he hid the loot from the last heist 8 years ago, $10 Million in Bonds. To get his hands on it, his old partnet Vincent (John Lucas) kidnaps Allison and demands the entire $10 Million as ransom. Keeping her in the soundproofed trunk of a taxi cab, he is able to stay mobile amongst the trongs of taxis out during Mardi Gras making it nearly impossible to find.

Montgomery only has one day to get the $10 Million ransom but much to the disbelief of the FBI on his trail and Vincent, Will doesn't actually have it. Instead he must trust his instincts and his old partner in crime, the beautiful and smart Riley (Malin Ackerman), to do one more clever heist to get his daughter back alive before its too late.
