Still reeling from a failed CIA mission that killed his best friend, a washed-up former operative must plunge into action to survive powerful criminals demanding money he didn't steal.
After a bag of money is accidentally taken by an innocent party, a former soldier is framed for the exchange gone wrong, and has to clear his name while finding the money.
When a crime boss does not receive the delivery of money he was expecting, he suspects an ex-member of the CIA is responsible. The former CIA agent struggles to prove his innocence and find the true culprit, a tech wizard who unintentionally took the wrong bag at a bar.
When a duffel bag filled with a large sum of money fails to reach its intended destination after being mistakenly taken by the wrong person, the young hacking guru who accidentally took it and an ex-CIA agent who is blamed for the theft try to locate the money and clear their names.

When Nate finds the $1,000,000 just before airport security, he mistakenly assumes criminals associated with Keith have found identifying information in his bag and are after him.  He goes off-grid to think things through and travels to a small Romanian town, where he...
