Navy Seal Lt. Shane Wolf (Vin Diesel) and his team of commandos are assigned to rescue and return a highly important scientist holding super-confidential information, Howard Plummer (Tate Donovan). Tragically, when Wolf and his squad close in to free Plummer, everything goes horribly wrong -- Plummer is killed. Following the failed mission, Wolf's captain gives him a new assignment -- to guard the Plummer children from their late father's enemies. Knowing the family is in real potential danger, he takes on the assignment to redeem himself.
