A diamond dealer and his wife are taken hostage by four brutal thieves seeking easy cash, though things don't work out as planned.
Kyle, a fast-talking businessman (Nicolas Cage) living with his bored wife Sarah (Nicole Kidman) and his defiant teenage daughter Avery (Liana Liberato) lead a lavish lifestyle in their wealthy community but it is evident the marriage is not a happy one. As he is about to leave the house for a meeting, a gang of thugs led by Elias (Ben Mendelsohn) break into the home to get their hands on the cash and diamonds. The crooks demand that Kyle opens the safe but it is empty and he explains that he is bankrupt and has no money; his house and all of his possessions were bought on loaned credit. Enraged, Elias breaks Kyle's hand leading to prolonged terror for the family.
