- The movie tells us about Wallace (Benedict Cumberbatch) who has worked for Her Majesty. During his long service in Iraq, a decade ago Wallaces life was saved by former colleague, James (Colin Salmon). Several years after the memories still haunt him. His secret fight against PTSD is lying on his entire appearance like a waft of mist. Both men, one taller than the other, meet and James quickly calls in that favour. It could be anything until the men are joined by a third party named Lilah. What the favour is about remains unspoken but for some reason Lilah needs to be guarded. Although Wallace isn't convinced, there is no point to refuse to help when he owes James his very own life. From now on Lilah and Wallace form a unit. Soon after the meeting they are taken hostage by a group of attackers led by Yoel (Jack Goldenberg). Separated from each other, Wallace and Lilah are the most vulnerable. Beaten and bloodied Wallace is threatened with his own death to leak information. He refuses to cooperate and wants to know whether or not Lilah has been harmed. She and Wallace are the strongest when reunited but they have to face each other in the end. The final trigger is pulled and it turns out they aren't dealing with a little favour at all.
