Dom Hemingway (Jude Law) is a larger-than-life safecracker with a loose fuse, funny, profane, and dangerous. Back on the streets of London after twelve years in prison, it is time to collect what he is owed for keeping his mouth shut. Travelling with his devoted best friend Dickie (Richard E. Grant), Dom visits his crime boss Mr Fontaine (Demin Bichir) in the south of France to claim his reward. But Dom's drunk and drug-fueled ego decides what he has lost can not be replaced. One car accident and a femme fatale later, Dom realises his priority must be to reconnect with his long-lost daughter Evelyn (Emilia Clarke).
