He is the best man US Intelligence has on the ground, a sophisticated operative negotiating hot zones while no one close to him makes it out alive. But Roger Ferris (Leonardo DiCaprio) is a man with no identity beyond his last blown cover, trusting his life to the dispassionate voice on the other end of a secure phone line.
CIA veteran Ed Hoffman (Russell Crowe) wages war from a laptop in his living room in the suburbs, dictating Ferris’s movements even as he dodges bullets on the ground. An emerging terrorist leader has orchestrated a global campaign of bombings, eluding the most sophisticated intelligence network in the world. To lure him out into the open, Ferris will have to penetrate the world of underground financing and desperate martyrs, and form a shaky alliance with the head of Jordanian Special Ops. His quest takes him across Iraq, Jordan, Washington and Dubai, but the closer Ferris gets to the target, the more he finds himself caught in a hall of mirrors, where allies are only as good as their last deception, and trust becomes the most dangerous tactic of all.
