Dom Hemingway was the best safe cracker there was in London. That is until he is busted and sent to prison. He ends up serving twelve years in prison, whereas he would have only served three years if he had ratted out his boss Ivan Fontaine. When Dom is finally released, he hooks up with his best friend Dickie so he can get his money for keeping quiet all those years. Mr. Fontaine has no problem paying Dom what he is owed but it is Fontaine's gold digging lover that has a problem letting the money go. And after a horrific car accident she makes sure that that money is hers.
While searching for her, Dom tries to reconnect with his daughter after all these years.
