PlotAlexander (Steven Seagal) is the leader of a covert operation on the border of Dagestan. The primary target is Islamic terrorist Abu Alwaki, whereas the secondary target is Mr. Chen (Tzi Ma). Mr. Chen is an Islamic fundamentalist arms dealer who’s financing terrorism. The operation fails, resulting in the death of Alexander’s entire team and Mr. Chen's escape.
Long after the disastrous operation in Dagestan, Alexander has relocated to Eastern Europe. He starts to bond with his neighbor Lena (Iulia Verdes), and her younger sister Mya (Sofia Nicolaescu). Lena and Mya’s older brother Sasha (Victor Webster) collects protection money for the Mafia, in order to pay off his father’s debt and protect his younger sisters from any danger.
Lena works in a club that happens to be owned by mafia boss Vladimir (Claudiu Bleont), and Alexander drops by to have a chat. Vladimir notices the two of them bonding, and has his men to warn Alexander to stay away from Lena. Alexander refuses, and an ensuing fight results in death of three of Vladimir’s men. After killing Vladimir’s men, Alexander takes a bag containing $300,000 from the club. The $300,000 belongs to arms-dealer Mr. Chen. Mr. Chen was using Vladimir’s club to launder money on behalf of one of his buyers. Mr. Chen gives Vlad 24 hours to retrieve the money; otherwise he will take Lena to compensate for the missing $300,000.
Afterwards, Sasha is suspected of stealing Vladimir’s money. Because of this, Vladimir sends a team of hit-men to kill Sasha. Assuming that Sasha is now dead, Vladimir goes to Lena’s flat to prepare her for Mr. Chen, but after noticing Lena’s considerably younger sister Mya, he decides to take her instead. Mr. Chen’s buyer has a particular taste for young women, and according to Mr. Chen, “the younger the better”.
Sasha goes to Vladimir’s club, and Vladimir is surprised that he is still alive. Although Vladimir tried to have him killed, Sasha asks for more time to get Vladimir his money back. After beating up Vladimir’s men in a fistfight, Sasha is given more time to recover the money. Vladimir tells Sasha that as long as he gets his money back in 14 hours, he will give Mya back to him in one piece.
To try and find out the location of Mya, Alexander kidnaps Vladimir. After being tortured enough, Vladimir discloses the location of where Mr. Chen is holding Mya. Alexander then attends a meeting with Mr. Chen, and offers to give Mr. Chen his $300,000 - in exchange for Mya’s safe return. After initially accepting Alexander’s offer, Mr. Chen soon double crosses him on the deal. A bloody shootout then ensues, and after killing all of Mr. Chen's men, Alexander finally kills Mr. Chen in a sword-fight. He then takes Mya safely home to her brother Sasha and sister Lena.
