After losing the love of her life, Laura Bishop, an ex-special operations soldier, has lost her will to live. Only raising her daughter Kate keeps her going. Having given up her career as a soldier, her goal is to expend the least amount of energy possible to get by. She takes a security job at a mega-church–a place she thought would not require much effort. Contrary to her plan, a team of highly trained and armed terrorists take the church by siege. In keeping with her plan to disengage with life, she heads to notify the police of the take-over until she notices her daughter’s bike laying at the entrance of the church. Rushing back into the church, Laura goes on an all out hunt for her daughter. With highly-trained and coordinated terrorists standing between her and her daughter, Laura’s rage engages her past, setting off a pitched battle that may kill everyone involved.
